The hard street life addressed in the raps of 2 Pistols stems from a turbulent childhood. Born Jeremy Saunders in the Tarpon Springs area of Florida, Jeremy spent most of his childhood without his parents, who were in jail, leaving aunts and older brothers to raise him. He was involved in the drug game by his teens, which seemed a more stable gig since his hopes of becoming a pro football player had been crushed due to his smaller stature. He eventually landed in prison, but an earlier impromptu battle where 2 Pistols destroyed an established local rapper was on his mind the whole time. He decided that when he was released from prison he would devote all of his energy, time, and money to becoming a professional rapper. Upon release, he began realizing his goals, first as a promoter of Tampa area hip-hop concerts and then as the head of Blood Money Union, a loose crew featuring DJs, producers, and rappers from the area. By 2007 he was ready to begin his own career, and did so with some high-profile friends. With the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League as producers and T-Pain plus Tay Dizm as guests, 2 Pistols debuted with the single "She Got It," released in 2008 by the Universal label.
