2. The Scar On His Face Is The Result Of A Burn

Rio has a noticeable star on on the right side of his face and many people have wondered what it’s from. During an interview with No Jumper, he revealed that the scar is actually the result of an accident that occurred when he was 12-years-old. Rio said that one evening, after smoking weed, he was hungry and went to the kitchen to make some french fries. He put a pot of grease on the stove to heat up, went upstairs, and forgot about it. When he came back to the kitchen the pot was on fire. When he attempted to put the fire out by putting grease in the pot, the grease splashed all over his face and arms causing severe burns.

3. He’s Always Loved Music

Music has always been a part of Rio’s life and he’s been a hip-hop fan for as long as he can remember. When he was younger he even recorded tapes with his friends on a karaoke machine. It wasn’t until more recently, however, that he decided to take music seriously.
