It was just revealed that Snoop Dogg almost signed a joint record deal with 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records in the early 2000’s. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. I mean, come on, dude was once aligned with Master P’s No Limit. The info came to fruition during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid.
The deal was almost made when Snoop and Fif teamed up on the remix to 50’s “P.I.M.P.”. Whoo Kid said, “he was gonna have like a joint deal. 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 PIMP 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—out of here.’ But during that time is when he wanted to be like Dogg Pound/G-Unit.”
The man who we now know as “Snoop Lion” is currently working on his reggae album, “Reincarnated.” He also teamed up with Fiddy on his new single, “Major Distribution.”
