Expand you're listening material too. There's not a lot of harmony or soloing going on in hip hop beats, compared to like jazz, r&b, classic rock, funk, etc. You're better off studying that kind of music as there's more examples to learn from, and more multi-melody/harmony stuff going on.
very good advice. Trying to learn to solo on the guitar and watching videos of jazz greats talk about improvisation have helped me a lot.
