Riviera Beach, United States
King Rawstien, born Sammie Holmes, was born and raised in the crime infested city of Riviera Beach FL. Growing up raised by a single mother, though most would see as unfortunate, turned him into the man that he is today. Despite the poverty, drugs, and homicide, Rawstien managed to take control of his future putting his life into his music. Rawstien’s lyrics are based off past experiences in his life; in one of his first Releases “Pain” he talks about the pain of the city, death of peers with no cause, and watching his best friend take his last breath in his arms.
A strong quote from Rawstien’s hit single “What Made Ya” off of, his first EP, Most Envied states “Do you know what it takes to be a King without being raised by Kings?”.
Rawstien is a singer, song-writer, producer, and an all-around artist motivated to create the definitive of work that cannot be surpassed. Rawstien’s influences range from Tupac Shakur to Leonardo De Vinci and his biggest influence being his mother.
