50 Cent wants Robert Pattinson to join his rap group G-Unit.
The hip-hop star thinks the ‘Twilight’ heartthrob – who has previously contributed songs to the movie franchise’s soundtrack – would be a great addition to the band because he would attract so many female fans.
When asked he would like to join his band, he said: “Robert Pattinson. He has a big enough following to be the frontline. ‘Twilight’ ain’t no joke.”
50 is looking for new G-Unit members to tour with him this summer because his regular bandmates Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo are busy with their own musical projects.
He added to MTV: “It’s interesting because they probably won’t be coming with me. In the US, Banks has momentum with the first single off his new album, ‘Beamer, Benz or Bentley.’ So he’ll be out on his own tour. While he’s doing that, it probably wouldn’t make sense for Yayo to come with me because his record is almost done now – he should use that time to complete his record and release it shortly after.”
50 – who is getting ready to release his new album ‘Black Magic’ – is looking forward to touring with some new artists because he likes to give people a head start in the music industry.
He said: “You’ll see new faces, because I’m looking for new artists now. I’ll sign new artists and take them with me and kinda groom them. I don’t specifically say, ‘I want this kind of artist’ – I look for talent that inspires me, that complements what I do with their own thing.”
