As it was previously reported by Def Sounds, 50 Cent signed Jersey Shore reality star DJ Pauly D too his G-Unit/G-Note Records imprint.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, 50 explains why he signed Pauly D and future plans now that his is signed to his label:
“When Pauly came by to see me, they had options. They had several places that they were going, and people that were interested in doing a deal with him. Obviously, the momentum from Jersey Shore was spun off into him being the first one to have his own independent series. They’re moving places and DJing in front of bigger audiences, and getting ready to make moves internationally, where the DJ is the star, overseas. When I sat with him, I saw the opportunities we could have moving forward, with brand extension and packaging the music.”
As 50 speaks on what he see’s in the Jersey Shore star, he says that he is a mix of DJ Drama, DJ Khaled and David Guetta:
“I look forward to it. I call him the bridge. He’s going to be something between what you would get from a DJ Khaled or a DJ Drama and what you would get from David Guetta.”
