Snoop Dogg Once Nearly Signed To 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records?

Did you know that Snoop Dogg was once nearly an artist signed to 50 Cent's G-Unit label?

In a recent interview with ThisIs50.com, longtime G-Unit associate DJ Whoo Kid revealed that the west coast rap legend was close to signing a joint venture with Fif to join the G-Unit roster.

He recalled meeting Snoop during the recording of the remix to 50's "P.I.M.P.," during which the rapper expressed his interest in joining forces.

"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 explained. "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 sh** is out of here' ... but during that time is when he wanted to be like Dogg Pound/G-Unit."

Obviously, the deal never happened, but Snoop Doggg and 50 Cent are still collaborators. They both recently worked on 50's latest song, "Major Distribution," off his impending Street King Immortal.
