A few weeks ago, Snoop said that he recently told 50 Cent they should do an album together, and now it looks like the "P.I.M.P." video co-stars might make the idea a reality. Under the supergroup moniker of "DPG-Unit," the Dogg Pound and G-Unit have recorded almost an entire LP worth of material together while on the Rock the Mic Tour.
"We're gonna take over the whole world," Snoop's cousin Daz told MTV.com of the joint venture. "We got a song with me, Snoop Dogg, [Snoop's protégé] Soopafly, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and 50 Cent for the G-Unit album."
The six MCs recorded nine other songs in a three-day period while on tour, but do not have definite plans yet as to where the remaining tracks will pop up. The supergroup doesn't even have a record label to put an album out, but members have been toying with the possibility of using 50's G-Unit Records as a recording home.
"Eight [bars], eight [bars], eight [bars], then a hook. Eight, eight, eight, then a hook," Daz revealed of the DPG-Unit's song structures. "We're going back and forth. It's all about coordination. Sometimes we're in there doing our parts while [members of the G-Unit] are onstage. Sometimes they're doing their parts while we're onstage. We'll be in there sometimes together. Especially after the show, we have our little parties and whatever. We be having a good time. We're trying to make it a whole album, just unite together and keep it crackin.' "
So far, the Dogg Pound and G-Unit have had a spotless record of success with their collaborations. It was Daz who brought 50 and his tour DJ, Whoo Kid, the Tupac vocals that wound up being used for the underground smash "The Realest Killas." Meanwhile, with Snoop appearing on 50's "P.I.M.P" remix, that record has also become a fan favorite.
Daz, who's also working out a solo recording deal with Jermaine Dupri's So So Def label (see "Jermaine Dupri To Sign 3LW, Former Dogg Pound Member Daz"), says his ties to the G-Unit go back further. As it turns out, Young Buck has been a friend of his for years.
Now, apparently, the camaraderie is running rampant throughout both camps.
"We'll all be talking to the G-Unit and tell them, 'Y'all are just like us.' We all like the same things."
