      " Ghost-riding the whip," a relatively new fad in which a driver exits the car and dances around or on top of the moving vehicle, has claimed two lives and led to several injuries in others. Ghost-riding (also known as "ghosting") was ushered in with the west coast-bred hip-hop subgenre known as hyphy. 
       Last month, 18-year old Davender Gulley, died after his head slammed into a parked car while he was hanging out the window of an SUV in Stockton, according to police reports. In October, a 36-year-old man dancing on top of a moving vehicle fell, hit his head and died in what authorities noted as Canada’s first ghost riding fatality.
      E-40’s hyphy smash "Tell Me When to Go" is a highly favored ghost-riding soundtrack. The song offers a step-by-step on how to undertake the ghost-riding stunt, and includes the lyrics: "Ghostride the whip."
