(2006)

"Ghost Ride It" is the first single from Bay Area rapper Mistah F.A.B. from his studio album Da Yellow Bus Rydah.

The song is about the Ghost riding fad, which involves walking or dancing alongside a car while a vehicle is still moving. The song samples the theme song of Ghostbusters. Along with "Tell Me When to Go" by E-40 featuring Keak da Sneak, the song introduced hyphy to the rest of the country.

Music video

The video explains the whole song, plus he also explains what hyphy is and what the terminology of bay slang is. The edited version of the video bleeps out various drug references (such as the word "high" or "pills") and references to ghost-riding such as the word "hood" and even "car" (for example in the line: "Dancing on the hood while the car is still rolling").

MTV later banned the video of the song after controversy over a scene involving an altered version of the car and logo from the film Ghostbusters. Columbia Pictures, who owned rights to the franchise, demanded the video be banned from the network because it still owned the rights to the logo and car from the film. [1]
