Rapper has reportedly offered DJ Pauly D three album deal

50 Cent has offered Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D a record deal, according to US gossip website TMZ.com.

The report indicates that 50 wants to sign the reality star, whose real name is Paul DelVecchio, on a three album deal and has been in negotiations with his people all week.

The discussions also apparently included plans for 50‘s label G-Unit to produce a merchandise line, with signature DJ Pauly D headphones.

According to the report, 50 is keen to tie the deal up before DelVecchio films out to Italy to film a fourth season of the phenomenally successful MTV reality show.

Reports earlier this week suggested that DelVecchio and his Jersey Shore co-stars will pick up $250,000 (£150,000) per episode for their new series.
