During an interview, DJ Whoo Kid revealed that Snoop Dogg was interested in signing a joint deal with 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records imprint at one time.
It was during a recent interview with “This Is 50’s” “Young Jack Thriller” that Whoo Kid talked about a time when Snoop was seriously interested in signing a joint deal with G-Unit. It was when Snoop Dogg (Now known as Snoop Lion), worked with Fif on the remix to P.I.M.P. During that time the Long Beach native expressed serious interest in doing a joint deal.
“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.”
The two emcees recently collaborated on the song “Major Distribution”, a song off of 50’s upcoming release Street King Immortal. The word is that Snoop is prepping for his first reggae album.
