Kevin “Ke-Real” Walker and Gaetano “Tommy Gunnz” Piccirilli met in Nashville TN, in March, 2005. They were both working in the construction industry and met on the construction site. Their friendship came out of their mutual interest in music, particularly rap music. When they discovered that they both were aspiring rap artists, they decided to hear each other’s lyrics and style. They liked what they heard so much that they decided to start a group. “North South Finest” formed with Ke-Real, Tommy Gunnz, and two other artists. Personal issues and creative differences soon divided the group, and they parted ways. Kevin and Gaetano eventually lost contact with each other.

Two years later, Kevin moved back to his hometown of Atlantic City, NJ, around the same time, Gaetano was staying at his father’s home in Galloway, New Jersey ten minute distance from each other. One day Gaetano went to the Hamilton Mall, and to his complete surprise bumped into Kevin. They discovered that they now lived near each other again, and decided it was fate. Kevin had been recording and writing, but when he found that his friend and “partner” was nearby again, he knew that he needed him to join him in his work. Gaetano immediately began writing, and the two began rehearsing together.
