Jeremy Lemont Saunders (born June 11, 1983),[1] better known by his stage name 2 Pistols (censored as 2P), is an American rapper and songwriter. He hails from Tarpon Springs, Florida.[2] He has released two albums and a number of singles and mixtapes. He signed with Universal in 2007[3] and his collaboration with T-Pain on the song "She Got It", which peaked at #7 on the Rhythmic Top 40 chart in 2008, and hit #2 on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks chart.[4][5]

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.[1] After this he became involved in music promotion and formed a group called Blood Money Union, which consisted of other DJs, producers and rappers.[2]

Saunders' first success in rapping had come with a self-released record called "Dirty Foot," which he wrote while still in high school[2] 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 rapper's 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.[2]

His debut album, Death Before Dishonor, was released on June 17, 2008[5] and featured production from the Grammy-winning J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Da Honorable C.N.O.T.E, Bolo Da Producer, and others. Other tracks from the album included "You Know Me feat. Ray J" & "Thats My Word feat.Trey Songz"," in addition to "She Got It." The album peaked at #32 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and rose to #10 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip Hop album chart.[6] 2 Pistols resides in Tampa, Florida and currently releases his music under his own label, Blood Money Union. In February 2014, the album Comin Back Hard appeared through Stage One Music.[7]
