50 Cent Close To Signing "Jersey Shore's" Pauly D, Introducing New Phone App
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.
