50 Cent hot for 2006 Dodge Charger

DETROIT, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Chrysler is getting its money's worth from rapper 50 Cent, who wants a Dodge Charger to go with the Chrysler 300 he bought last year.

The New York-born rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, quickly registered his desire to get the four-door remake of the classic muscle car, the Detroit News reported.

"I need to know what I gotta do to get that Dodge Charger first. I need that," 50 Cent said in a voice message to an auto customization magazine, the Detroit News reported.

DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group will do the same for 50 Cent as it did Snoop Dogg, who generated reams of free publicity last summer when he also was hot to get a Chrysler 300, the newspaper said.

"That's two 50 Cent purchases," Chrysler CEO Dieter Zetsche said at the Detroit Auto Show. "Now, we're up to a buck."
