Go to Zen Pro Audio and click on their clipalator. They have a male vocal demo that you can compare the Retro 176 and the Sta and many many others. Not hip hop but you'll notice the Sta smooths it over a bit whereas the 176 keeps it wide open yet still imparts a bit of vintage tube vibe. The CL1B will keep it even wider open. Unfortunately, they don't include the CL1B in the clipalator. Another one to consider is the Thermionic Phoenix if you want it open but with a bit of subtle tube smoothness.

Yea I have seen that but I'm looking for clips where the vocals are in a mix. Preferably hiphop. Thanks for the suggestion though.
