1. Biography

From a broken home, Saunders grew up being looked after by his extended family. By his teens, he became involved in local crime and in 2005 was incarcerated for eight months. After this, he became involved in music promotion and formed a group called Blood Money Union, which consisted of other DJs, producers and rappers.

Saunders first success in rapping had come with a self-released record called "Dirty Foot," which he wrote while still in high school and distributed in the Tarpon Springs area, at the urging of his cousin. After hearing it played in a local dance club and then witnessing another rappers performance, 2 Pistols had his first chance to perform on-stage. After taking the stage and performing his own single "Dirty Foot", 2 Pistols confidence in his abilities grew to a point that he began to take his chances at making a career of music seriously.
