Wow, as whacked out (and great) as Ghost Dog was, I have trouble conceving of it as based on anything else. I'll have to check out Johnny Cool if I get the chance.

By the way, the film's director/writer, Jim Jarmusch, was once in the band the Del Byzanteens, some of whose songs featured lyrics by Luc Sante, who later wrote the hardboiled non-fiction Low Life.
