Pauly D has parlayed his “Jersey Shore” fame into a spinoff series, an opening DJ gig on Britney Spears‘ “Femme Fatale” tour and, as of yesterday, a record deal with 50 Cent‘s G-Note label. Yahoo reports that G-Note focuses on pop and dance music, which is right in Pauly D’s fist-pumping wheelhouse.
50 Cent said that his latest DJ was a “great addition to G-Note and [the] G-Unit family.” He also called Pauly D smart and creative.
In September, Vulture reported that Pauly D’s DJ fee has gone up to $40,000. With such a high-profile label attached to his name, it’s only a matter of time before that fee skyrockets further.
