Hip-Hop an Comics

So I just finished writing two scripts this week Extra/Ordinary issue 5 and The Hierophant issue 1. I'm going to pitch both to indie publishers (I'd like to get Extra/Ordinary on Image and the Hierophant on Dark Horse) I realized that in the midst of writing both of these I had been listening to hip-hop, a genre who most wouldn't associate with comics but I feel like the grooves and swag of the songs helped me write more than rock has in a long time. It hit me afterwards that I've read a lot of creators listen to rap Grant Morrison for instance is a Jay-z fan and Joshua Dysart just quoted Nas in Harbinger, Which I thought was awesome. I  wanted know if anyone else listens to hip-hop when they read comics or even better writer comics if they indeed do write?
