Snoop Dogg Almost Signed Joint Deal With G-Unit Records

DJ Whoo Kid reveals that Snoop Dogg wanted to sign a joint deal with 50 Cent's label.

DJ Whoo Kid says that two of Dr. Dre's most successful proteges almost inked a record deal together.

In a recent interview with This Is 50's Young Jack Thriller, Whoo Kid revealed that Snoop Dogg - now known as Snoop Lion - was looking to sign a joint-venture with 50 Cent's G-Unit imprint in the early 2000s. He recalled meeting Snoop during the recording of the remix to 50's "P.I.M.P.," during which the Long Beach legend expressed his hope to join the Queens emcee's label.

"It was kinda close; it wasn't like he was gonna sign, he was gonna have like a joint deal [with G-Unit]," Whoo Kid revealed. "During those days, he had joint deals with everybody - he had one with Master P…he was signed to everybody. But he wanted a G-Unit connection because 'P.I.M.P.,' when Fif did it, he didn't have Snoop on there or nothing like that, so my introduction to Snoop, I was supposed to meet him in L.A., so I said, 'I'ma take the 'P.I.M.P.' record to Snoop. I got Snoop to get on the remix, but it was a freestyle. When I came back to New York and I let Fif hear it, he was like, 'I'm keeping this, man. This shit is out of here'…but during that time is when he wanted to be like Dogg Pound/G-Unit."

Snoop and Fif most recently collaborated on the song "Major Distribution," off Fif's impending Street King Immortal. Snoop is also prepping the release of his first reggae album Reincarnated.

    "50 JUST WENT TO THE DAYTONA 500 in FLORIDA" Did you watch the clip where he gets totally dissed by Erin Andrews? Curtis goes in for a kiss and she would rather look like a fool on TV than let that goon's lips touch her face lol Then some guy from ESPN questions why Fif is even there, and says Drake would have been a better choice to represent hip hop at Daytona.

      she was on live tv and the race was about to start in minutes, she was looking for danica patrick and 50 came outta nowhere. it wasnt a big deal. check erin andrews twitter she loves 50. he probably already fucked her.

    The kids hate on Snoop.. check the catalogue, 1993 - 2013.. craps on your fave rapper... you all expect people to make the same music every year for 20 years.. your delusional. Snoop opened the West up, and also opened the South up... when he signed with NO Limit, it was a trail blazing move.. haters... and mis-educated..pure and simple. follow at noles506

    Snoop signing w/G Unit would have been a beutiful thing in the early 2000s it woulda deffinately been a better move than signing Game, especially if it woulda included Daz and Kurupt too!
