Pauly D isn't limiting his musical talents to the DJ booth - the "Jersey Shore" star is working on an upcoming album, with some help from 50 Cent.
The rapper has signed the reality star to his label G-Note Records, saying in a statement, "Pauly's a great addition to G-Note and G-Unit family. He's smart, creative, and will definitely bring something special to the label. We're really excited about his project."
50 Cent tells MTV that Pauly's offering will be "more like what you would get from a DJ Khaled or DJ Drama but also what you would get from David Guetta - so it's a cross between those two worlds...We're gonna make a hit record out of the actual material that we have around and some of the new stuff we've put together."
Pauly D dropped hints of the upcoming album earlier this year to Billboard. "I'm focusing on music. That's my passion," the "Shore" star said, adding that the album with 50 Cent is "going to be a little bit of everything."
