G-Unit's DJ Whoo Kid recently reflected on his role as rap star 50 Cent's personal deejay and how often he gets handed a pink slip only to come back and resume his duties.
According to Whoo Kid, he has actually been fired nearly 50 times.
"The first deejay got stabbed and left town, went to Tennessee or somewhere," Whoo Kid said in an interview. "I think it was during that studio situation where the lights got cut off. It was a deejay that got stabbed. When 50's mixtape came out, they had the tour schedule. They just needed a deejay but at that time, they weren't interviewing anybody. The trust issue was crazy. So, I was put into G-Unit as the deejay. ... It's up to 48 [times being fired] now -- I don't mind getting fired because I guess he's so used to doing it so much that he gotta keep firing me. You could go on YouTube and see all the countries I got fired from." (This Is 50)
Recently, the comedic deejay hit up SOHH and compared having Eminem and 50 as bosses.
"Who is a better boss? Eminem or 50 Cent? [laughs] I think 50 just because I'm interacting more with him. He's always advising me on anything that has to do with business, touring, music, he talks to me about everything, even family stuff," Whoo Kid told SOHH when asked if 50 Cent or Eminem, who owns radio state Shade 45, is a better boss. "Eminem is super busy, you know what I'm saying? I usually do most of my interacting with Eminem when it's about a tour or radio or if we're on some real down time and all together." (SOHH)
Having gotten pranked by 50 in the past, Whoo Kid also said the Unit are smart enough not to retaliate against the general.
"50 and them are still [pranking] but I've been vigilant with it and watching my door, making sure my rooms are locked, check my underwear for any kind of spices or whatever it is that they're doing," Kid laughingly added. "I don't want garlic in my socks. ... Nobody [in G-Unit] is off limits when it comes to pranks. I think 50 is the only one probably because everyone is scared to trick him. He's just notorious because you can't really surprise him without him swinging. ... If you try to trick or scare him it's over. We don't know what the outcome would be. We would do a water joke on him, pour a bucket of water, but we don't know if that would be funny or if we'd get beat up. [laughs] I don't know." (SOHH)
Last November, Whoo Kid opened up on 50's delayed new solo album.
"He wants it to come out but he's dealing with label sh*t too," Whoo Kid said about 50 Cent's album delay. "It's like the politics of when to drop and you gotta understand there's competition with other people too. So labels are just, like, maneuvering when to drop 'cause I know he did, most of it is done. Like 95 percent of it is finished so he wants it to come out and if it was up to him it would but I may assume it's the labels that's f*cking with him but at the end of the day I heard like nine joints that's crazy. I wish I had it now so I could f*cking make some serious money off of it myself, but, you'll hear it soon." (Amaru Don TV)
