Jeremy Lemont Saunders (born June 11, 1983), better known by his stage name 2 Pistols (censored as 2P), is an American rapper and songwriter. He hails from Tarpon Springs, Florida. He has released two albums and a number of singles and mixtapes. He signed with Universal in 2007 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.
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 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.
His debut album, Death Before Dishonor, was released on June 17, 2008 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. 2 Pistols resides in Tampa, Florida and currently releases his music under his own label, Blood Money Union.
