Whoo Kid Confirms DJ Pauly D's Involvement With G-Unit, Working With Hot Rod

UPDATE: Although details are sparse, Whoo Kid says that DJ Pauly D is likely in the G-Note subsidiary fold, and working with longtime 50 Cent protege Hot Rod.

The Jersey Shore phenomenon shows no signs of stopping any time soon. And 50 Cent, ever the opportunistic businessman, wants to get in on the action. TMZ is reporting that Curtis is pursuing the hit show’s DJ Pauly D for a three album deal with his G-Unit label. According to the gossip site’s sources the two men met in New York last week and while no official signing has taken place they are already planning out the deejay’s future including merchandising and musical collaborations. 50 is apparently looking to get this deal done before Pauly D begins filming his show’s next season which will take place in Italy. TMZ contacted the Queens rapper but their calls were not returned.

In other 50 news, he continues to hustle on the tech front. He has partnered with social media company UberSocial to create his own free application. The app will be called Uber50 and it is a Curtis-centric version of the UberSocial phone theme. The theme features custom icons designed by 50, access to the G-Unit Twitter list, and exclusive artwork. There is also an Exclusive G’d Up Edition of the theme which will cost you $1.99. That version comes with sound effects created by 50, more exclusive artwork, and the chance to get a Twitter shout out from the G-Unit CEO.

(April 15)

UPDATE: DJ Whoo Kid recently sat down with Shade45’s morning show to confirm reports that DJ Pauly D from MTV's Jersey Shore fame would be joining G-Unit. Whoo Kid acknowledged the signing and said that it makes sense, since 50 is trying to “get in the club scene.”

“He has new records that he wants to showcase and since 50 is doing a lot of, especially with the Hot Rod situation, he wants to broaden the horizons. He wants to get in the club scene and what better way?”

He went on to add that the signing may not be to G-Unit necessarily and that it would likely be to G-Note, a G-Unit subsidiary that primarily caters to Dance, Pop, R&B artists.

“I think he’s G-Note,” Whoo Kid added. “Well, I haven’t got the full thing yet but I’m assuming he’s G-Note.”

Hot Rod, who is mentioned in the article, is another act signed to G-Note. After waiting for years for his project to be released, he is eyeing a drop date later this year. He’s been reportedly working with dance acts like David Guetta, Akon and others including Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes.

In 2010, Hot Rod spoke about this with VIBE, as we reported.

“G-Unit Records is hardcore street influenced Hip Hop music, but with G-Note it’s more of a Pop, Dance and R&B feel," he said. "I’m like a fusion of both. You’re still going to hear me rapping but it’s on a different style of production."

    Imagine Pauly D telling his parents, "Guess what, I'm signing to G Note Records." They'll look at him like WTF?

  • Jesus

    Whoo kid:dude i want some dick 50:ill call over hot rod Whoo kid:didnt his name use to be Spider locc? 50: yeahh but after Banks sucked his dick we decided thats his new nickname whoo kid:oh... and Yayo? 50:well turns out he was so used t oprison he raped me, Hot rod, and said "if you dont bring that yummy dude from Jersery shore in or ima rape you for the rest of your life" whoo kid:sounds like para....i mean eww god thats gross...uhm just outta curiousity...does yayo rape in the shower? or out of it 50:well... i was fuckin olivia and opened her legs and said "you hit it" and well... i ended up face down takin dick like a drugged out college chick

  • okay serious

    50 if you read this DO NOT let Hot Rod drop an album! he will FLOP horribly and G-note records will be given a horrible reputation and its just taking off! lol for real though

  • lol

    I wonder how mad all those European stans that hiphopdx is filled with are now that theyve released G Unit is over and 50 was just a puppet for the Gods Eminem and Dr Dre like Justin Beiber is to Usher. Fucking lol.

    • dirtysouthernhotshot

      European stans.... Wallup faggot I'm European and I fucking hate all this 50 and G-Unit trash. Europe has just as many hardcore rap fans as the States, maybe more. That's why people like Nas and Wu-Tang have said that on their European tours they get more love and energy than in the States. The States is full of white teens who cream for 50 and his gang, don't deny it



  • Gambit Pierce

    Isnt this guy sopose to release mixtape with dr dre today

  • i bet..

    Hot Rod hates the music he's putting out, i listened to his shit when he first signed to G-Unit, and it was G-unit type shit, now the stuff he's putting out is soft and doesn't seem like him at all.

  • Coroner's Offices

    Hahahahaha. DJ Pauly D? Of all the people he could sign, he had to sign Jersey Shore's "DJ"? No Jay Rock, no Kendrick Lamar, no Uncle Murda, not even someone from SMACK battles like Serius or Mook? This is some mad bullshit. There's cats making dope beats out, but he had to get some guido who sounds like any other DJ. Can Pauly D scratch, cut, break, flip, produce some good shit? Or is Pauly D just another playlist DJ?

    • Beast

      Jay Rock is signed to strange music, Kendrick Lamar is stayin independent, uncle murder doesn't have the mainstream appeal for 50 to sign him(50 want money). 50 is usin Pualy D to help start his pop label not for his Agressive label so the artist above wouldnt fit anyway

    50 can't sell his own shit anymore, he should care about his career. All his comments in the past, he can't be serious. I mean, look at his talk in 2007. Kanye sold him the fuck out and what did he do? Chaning his words once again. His relevance was gone in 2006.

  • old 50 fan

    forget all the nonsense. i used to be a fan of 50. i dont care about his money, sales, if his albums are classic, what businesses or he opens or any of that. for me its quality of music. i grew up with boot camp, wu, onyx. yea music evolves but 99% of the shit out is terrible. signing this jersey shore fag is not helping. this hipster/trash movement needs to go away. most of you are blinded by image and the fact rappers appear to have money. the reality is they get fronted all this money and wind up broke when they have to pay it back. think of it as getting a student loan for school. you still have to pay your loan. kids today think lil wayne has massive money. just cuz hes "living a dream" he has nothing to pass on. maybe he doesnt have money problems (unless u count the taxes he hasnt paid) but all his kids (which tax payers pay for) will have nothing. so what kind of person are you? have brains folks.

    • Anonymous

      yea word. Wanye will not last in the community. His shit will be forgotten. there is a reason why onyx's backdafucup is still played by heads, that goes for all those classics albums. Wanye has only contributed bullshit, he will be forgotten once he stops making money and the record labels go on to the next 1.

    50 cent is a whore

  • Pesanyingi

    I said it and I'll say it again - 50 needs to sign solid MC's - Uncle Murda, Mac Miller, Kendar lamar, Jay Rock, Meek Mill, Fred the Godson - His been hard at signing wack acts like 40 Glocc, Spider Loc, Hot Rod even Tony Yayo is wack am sorry - His weight 50 is carry around (50's Memphis Bleek)- Simple 50 listen to lyrics and delivery then put up some real dough and snap up these acts - house them in a G-unit subsidary, and let them work with hot producers releasing mixtapes, and eventually albums. Keep the streets hot with hot acts...come on son!

  • Lsn22s

    I will say this, however... As great of a businessman 50 Cent is...he seems to have one prevalent flaw...50 always seems to invest in the short-term instead of the long-term...look at the way he handles his artists...or his beefs...or even his business deals...50 is REALLY good at scooping up something that's hot at the moment, but he seems to lack that killer instict in his long-term ventures...if u notice, 50 tends to make his money in quick bursts, as opposed to a steady stream of revenue... honestly, 50 was on top of the industry, if he had played his cards right, and made some more thoughtful management decisions based around the 50 Cent/G-Unit brand names, he would still be running shit...everbody knows 50 has crazy money, but he also lost crazy amounts of rank in the world of hip hop, not to mention selling power...not sure Pauly D is gonna bring back any of that, but I'm sure 50 will find a way to cake off him if they work together...

  • Lsn22s

    Not sure what 50's plan is here, i wonder if this Pauly D guy makes beats or something? Can he cut records like a real DJ or is he a laptop/playlist DJ? Or maybe he wants him for live shows, so he can stick Pauly D on the show roster to bring more heads in... No hate, I'm just curious as to what 50 actually wants to pay him to do...Seems like a opportunistic move on 50's part, as soon as jersey Shore falls off, Pauly D's name will start to as well, so it's smart to get him involved with something now while the show still has influence over young folks... Also, the article says there is NO DEAL YET...so this could end up being nothing, folks should relax...

  • Niggas these days....

    Damn you niggas are dumb as fuck... This is why 50 cent is so rich...GENIUS. Do you morons not realize how many stuck up hoes watch Jersey Shore? Doesn't matter what this nigga sounds like. If they give him a good beat and a "catchy" hook - those same stuck up hoes are the ones who buy cds. You niggas on the other hand will probably still be downloading albums (not supporting your "favorite" artists) instead of buying them. 50 continues to find new ways to get rich. I commend him

    • killaCamryToyota Literally

    hiphop is so gay nowadays, rappers with skinny jeans which are singing in songs doing remixes with house dj's. Remember that 50 Cent was in Ibiza and Ibiza is known for housemusic and a lot of faggots and guys who are dressed like women

  • SuperGucciRap

    LOL 50 Cent is desperate of coming back by signing a cast of Jersey Shore. 50 Cent sucks anyway. He can't rap, sing or even act. A worthless human being. Gucci Mane and Justin Bieber are the best emcees of all time. KRS-One stated that Bieber has the sickest skills on the mic and he murked him in a freestyle 10 times already. Gucci Christ will save you from the current state of hip-hop. Listen to Gucci and you'll get straight A's in all your classes. It's Gucci Time!
