Taking time to indulge
in a little decadence before unleashing his Valentine’s Day Massacre,
50 Cent is planning to bedeck his palatial Connecticut mansion with Louis Vuitton
fashions and has also requested the new Dodge Charger from DaimlerChrysler.
50 Cent, real name Curtis
Jackson, reportedly told the publisher of DUB magazine that he wanted to be
one of the first to cruise in DaimlerChrysler’s new Dodge Charger.
The brawny sedan was exhibited
at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and will be available
to the public this spring.
Not slow to snatch up an
offer from a multi-platinum rapper who could possibly increase sales, Chrysler
is using 50’s appeal as a marketing ploy for their Charger.
In a press conference, Dieter
Zetsche, CEO and President of Chrysler Group, mentioned that 50 already possesses
the Chrysler 300 and is looking to add the Charger to his collection.
two 50 Cent purchases, now, we’re up to a buck," said Zetsche.
Chrysler’s 300 has made
guest appearances in several rap videos, including 50’s and Snoop Dogg’s.
Snoop reportedly told Zetsche
in a voice-mail message, "If you want this car to blow, give it to me."
Chrysler sold more than
60,000 300’s in as little as five months, with scores of customers still ruminating
on waiting lists.
Last August, sales of Chrysler
cars increased 43 percent from 2003.
50 has also called on Louis
Vuitton, which has undoubtedly benefited from numerous rap shout-outs, to garnish
his Farmington, Connecticut pad.
The Queens-bred rapper is
reportedly in talks with Louis Vuitton to plaster the walls of the 18-bedroom
house with Vuitton’s signature "LV" logo.
But Fiddy allegedly wants
the work done for free.
wants some money," a source told the New York Post, "but
50 is saying they will get publicity for it, so they are discussing that now."
50 purchased the mansion, which includes 38 bathrooms and a 3500 square foot
disco, from boxer Mike Tyson for $4 million last year.
