I think you are putting to much of an emphasis on the converters... Most of the big name engineers mixing the songs we consider great, could care less about the converters... seriously.
Mics, preamps, technique... creative mixing is what's really important. Any good converter that fits your price range will work well for hip hop... One unit that is not on your list, but very good is the Crane Song HEDD192. That unit allows you to shape the sound by adding harmonic distortion... It sounds like that's what you are looking for.
