Italian abbreviation

How common is it in written Italian to abbreviate the word "per" with the letter "X"? I've come across at least two songs (Tiziano Ferro's "Perdono" and Zucchero's "Per colpa di chi") which are often written that way - even if the "per" is part of a word. Is it one of those "cool" spellings, sort of along the lines of the English-language hip-hop tradition of misspelling everything in sight?
