The Brief Introduction About Ktborderline
While interviewing them, for me, it was a profound moment to understand the history of ktborderline, and they explained that in March 2005, Kevin “Ke-Real” Walker and Gaetano “Tommy Gunnz” Piccirilli met in Nashville, TN. They were working in the construction industry and have met on a construction site. They had a mutual interest in music, especially in rap music, and discovered they both inherited aspirations from rap artists. They decided to form a rap group but later on parted ways due to personal differences.
Later after two years, Kevin moved back to his hometown of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Gaetano was staying in Galloway, New Jersey. They both bumped into each other at Hamilton Mall and discovered that they were living near each other and, considering it a fate started to write and record rap music again.
