Early life and education
Rug was raised with his older brother Brandon in San Diego, by his parents who were both born in Iraq – the two are often mentioned in his videos, with Rug referring to them as Mama and Papa Rug. Rug attended a local high school in San Diego where he learned how to play football, soccer, and then learned how to ride a skateboard with the help of his brother.
He launched his YouTube channel while still attending high school, and after matriculation decided not to pursue a college degree, but to work online (YouTube). Rug’s parents were not very supportive of the idea, but nevertheless allowed him to do what he wanted.
While at high school, Rug resembled Rico from the “Hannah Montana” TV comedy series, and was often asked if he really was Rico, so much so that after a while he simply said ‘yes’.

His description section reads ‘Thanks for stopping by my channel! 23 year old making dope videos for you beautiful humans. Make sure to hit that subscribe button I promise you won’t regret it :’ The channel now counts over 14 million subscribers and nearly three billion views combined of all his videos.
