A great soundbite, fo’ shizzle

ChryslerNews of Snoop Dogg’s love of the Chrysler 300 (shown here) has made it all the way to the company’s CEO.

Earlier today, Dieter Zetsche, Chrysler’s president and CEO, thanked Motor Trend magazine for naming the Chrysler 300 its car of the year. “As Snoop Dogg would say, it’s the shizzle,” Zetsche said of the award, in his German-accented English, Reuters reports.

The L.A. rapper apparently left a voicemail for Zetsche last May asking how he could get one of the sedans.
