Columbia Pictures Threatens to Sue Mistah F.A.B.

mistah-fab.jpgThe Bay Area’s Mistah F.A.B. is once again in trouble, this time with Columbia Pictures for using the Ghostbusters’ car and logo in his new video “Ghost Ride It.” Columbia Pictures, who owns the rights to the Ghostbusters films, has threatened to sue Mistah F.A.B. and demanded that the video be banned from all media outlets, including TV and the Internet. Mistah F.A.B.’s “Ghost Ride It” is no stranger to controversy. In December, the media linked the video to two “ghost riding” deaths, which prompted MTV to consider banning the video from the air. After 52 edits, however, the video was allowed to air and eventually made MTV’s Sucker Free Countdown. All of that may change now that Columbia Pictures has threatened legal action. In the meantime, Mistah F.A.B. will release his new independent album, Da Baydestrian on May 15 through Favea Afta/Thizz/SMC Recordings. The album acts as a precursor for his major label debut, Da Yellow Bus Rydah, which will be released on Atlantic Records later this year.
