Mistah F.A.B. "Ghost Ride It" (2007)
Bay Area folks can check out Oakland rapper Mistah FAB (aka Mistah F.A.B. - the Yellow Bus Ridah) plus a DJ set by Tap.10 of the Honor Roll Crew playing a free show tonight (Thursday July 25th) as part of the MGD Get Fresh Tour at the Great American Music Hall on O'Farrell Street in San Francisco - thanks to the sponsorship of an American beer company who are offering tickets to those to RSVP in advance (I.E. right now) by visiting MGD.com/getfreshtour and logging to Facebook and saying you like their beer. You can tell a lie too about liking the beer or, if by chance you never tasted it, you can at the accompanying open bar with free booze all night at tonight's event. While North Oakland rapper Mistah FAB, who was one of the key players in the Bay Area hyphy movement some years back, may not be near as hot a commodity as he once was back in the mid to late 2000's (many blame the delay in his major label national release to his fall from popularity), he is still a talented artist with a fat back-catalog of songs to draw from such as "Ghost Ride It" above or the Traxamillion produced hit he made with Too $hort "Sideshow" (below) from that same period - at the peak of the short-lived Bay Area hyphy movement. Insiders have also been tipped FAB to make a bit of a comeback with his music being included in the soundtrack to the new movie Fruitvale Station about the killing of Oscar Grant. Doors for tonight's show are 8:30pm but show up early as a line is expected to form before then. The Great American Music Hall is located at 859 O Farrell Street (near Polk) in San Francisco, CA 94109. More club info here. And to ensure admission to tonight's show RSVP here now.
