I think I speak for most writers when I say that music can be a huge inspiration during the writing process. It can awaken the Muse, motivate you to create a certain character, and put an end to hours of toiling over a blank Word document. It’s a cure for Writer’s Block (at least for me).
I create playlists for every project, and somtimes go a step further by using one song for each chapter or sequence–however it works out. I’ve used everything from alternative rock to feature film scores and obscure piano pieces. Then I discovered underground hip hop beats.

I have listened to and enjoyed many underground hip hop beats, but Dasonn Beats are by far the best. Not much else I can say. They’re awesome.
Fellow writers: what songs and artists inspire you during your writing process, and why?
