Obituary

RAHEEM GREEN IBN BEY was born March 1, 1993 in Baltimore, Maryland to Antonio Smith-Bey and Angela Brandon. Raheem departed his life on April 13, 2018.

Raheem received his education in the Baltimore City Public School System. At an early age, Raheem gave his life to Christ and joined Christian Temple Baptist Church under Pastor Charles Goods and was later baptized.

Raheem, affectionately known as "Rizzle" to his friends, was very loving, funny but yet a mischievous child, who had a heart of gold. To know him was to love him. He captured your heart with those big bright eyes, his electric smile; but most of all that squeaky voice with that smart mouth...just like grandma Jean. Raheem loved his family and we loved our "Bear".

His heart was so full of love and joy. He had a special bond with all of his siblings. His sister Tallyse, was like a second mother to him and she would often be heard fussing him out in a loving way. Bryan, Raheem and Nateze were inseparable...when you see one you see them all. Three the hard way. The circle has been broken, but the chains will link again.

At the age of eight, Raheem met a little girl named Kenyonna (MaMa) Carter whom he pursued for years. That puppy love blossomed over the years and out of that love, two beautiful little girls were born. Rah'yonna (six) and Rah'lee (two). They were his world.   

Raheem leaves to cherish his memory: his parents, Antonio Smith-Bey and Angela Brandon: his grandparents, Barbara Green, Robert Smith and William Brandon (Barbara Brandon who precedes him in death); his fiancee Kenyonna (MaMa) Carter; two daughters, Rah'yonna and Rah'lee Bey; five brothers, Antonio, Tavon, Bryan (Courtney), Nateze and Dontray; four sisters, Markita, Tallyse (Howard), Shaniya and Kearra; four aunts, Lisa, Yolanda (Brian), Shawnta (Derrick) and Latrisha (Norman); three uncles, Calvin, William (Maray) and Willis; seven nephews; three nieces, three godmothers, Donna, Dennetta and Tonya; one godfather Floyd; his lifelong friend and brother, Lil' Eric; and a host of other relatives and friends.
