'Jersey Shore' star Pauly D teams up with 50 Cent

New York-December 2, 2011 The "Jersey Shore" star officially signed to the rapper's G-Note label on Thursday. The label focuses on dance and pop music - a good fit for Pauly D, since he's known as a DJ as well as a reality star.

He's been working in music since he was 16 and parlayed his success on the MTV hit series into becoming an in-demand DJ. Pauly D even joined Britney Spears for a few dates on her recent "Femme Fatal" tour as an opening act.

A few months ago Pauly D confirmed that he and the rapper were working together.

50 Cent said Pauly D was a "great addition to G-Note and G-Unit family" and called him smart and creative.
