4/14/2011 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pauly D is DANGEROUSLY close to joining forces with G-Unit -- because TMZ has learned, 50 Cent desperately wants to sign him to his record label ... in fact, a 3-album deal is already on the table.

Sources close to negotiations tell TMZ, the "Jersey Shore" DJ met with Fiddy and his people in NYC last week -- where they discussed the lucrative record deal ... and also tossed around the idea of a Pauly D merchandise line, specifically Pauly D-brand headphones.

Nothing's signed yet -- but according to sources, 50 wants to hammer out the deal ASAP ... before Pauly jets off to Italy to shoot "Jersey Shore" Season 4.

We're told talks have become so serious -- 50 and Pauly have even started to kick around ideas for people Pauly can collaborate with. Calls to 50's people weren't returned.

50 is so old, no one is checking for him anymore. Unless 50 is trying to make Pauly into the next David Guetta, I don't people won't really be feeling his music. Pauly is a DJ not an artist. I ain't hating on 50, I used to be a big fans back when he was just out now he's trying so hard to hang on to the little fame he still has.

50 Cent must have lost his career - he is trying everything for publicity and it is not good!

I respect 50 Cent for his ability to make fortunes. He almost always picks a winner. But here I am very skeptical.

Firstly, exactly who will buy an album or song of a DJ? Paul Oakenfold is about the only person to ever pull that off. Second, I've seen videos of Pauly spinning and he's not very good. I've seen much better DJs at small clubs in small towns. This is like Snooki's book; it's just an attempt to cash in on the Jersey Shore wave. So 50, sign him but only for one album because I guarantee this thing is gonna bomb.

You People are all crazy, calling 50 stupid its about money. like it or not pauly is one of the famous to come out of the jersey shore and lets be serious its about branding and the bottom dollar. Like it or not people would buy pauly d music because he has an audience he appeals to. In my OPINION 50 smart for this, cashing in.

a record deal doesnt mean Pauly D is gonna be rapping...hes using him to make mash-up albums or something to that nature. Compilation albums like Alchemist makes. G-unit is a brand not just a hiphop group

Isnt pauly d a DJ? I figure this would be more about him providing the beats and remixing than it would be him rapping. Either way... lame.
