Being the successful business man that he is, music mogul 50 Cent knows a hot item when he sees one. And after launching the rap careers of emcees like Game and Lloyd Banks, 50 is now looking to reality TV for his next big rap star, offering a deal to MTV’s “Jersey Shore” star DJ Pauly D.
According to XXL, Pauly D, who is currently opening up for Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale Tour” alongside hip-hop powerhouse Nicki Minaj, says that by the end of the year, he’ll sign a three-album deal with G-Unit Records, which will also release a line of Pauly D-branded headphones.
According to Pauly D, 50 Cent has always been a source of inspiration for him and explains that he’s excited about his future with G-Unit.
“50 cent has also been somebody I look up to,” said Pauly D. “We ended up linking up and we just clicked. We hit it off immediately with the music and everything like that. So, I’m definitely gonna be working with him. There’s been talks about the album and the headphones. I’m looking forward to working with that as well.”
Fans of the reality show star will likely see Pauly D working with 50 Cent and his new G-Unit family on his upcoming spinoff reality show, which is expected to premiere on MTV in the near future.
Hopefully, this won’t result in record deals for Pauly D’s fellow fame-loving cast members Snooki and The Situation.
