RARA-AVIS: hip: hardboiled or noir?

I was reading Frank Morgan's obit in the Washington Post today when I ran across this:

"Once asked why so many jazz musicians became addicts, he replied: 'It's about being hip. Jazz musicians would rather be dead than not be hip.'"

Don't know if it's hardboiled or noir (if either)), but it seemed to relate to the lit we discuss. Narcotics as femme fatale? A jazz or hardboiled facade leading to a noir end?
