Rapper Shows Off His Two Affordable and Practical Vehicles on “MTV Cribs”: “Cribs’ segment producer Jonah Rothelsberg explained the reasoning behind shelving the show. ‘I appreciate P-Krunk’s unique taste, but we have a responsibility to our young viewers and advertisers to show the real lifestyles that are true to the artist’s genre of music. A rapper who doesn’t capriciously spend all his money on cars and 100-inch plasmas is an anomaly that strains credibility. Our viewers would think we made this up or were trying to punk them.’ Rothelsberg cleared his throat and continued with a grin in a fake urban patois, ‘Sorry playa, my homies just ain’t havin’ it.'”
