This one is easy:

Heil PR40
Shure SM7B
Neumann TLM102 or TLM103.

And you'd get plenty of change from $2k.

All the above 3 mics are great quality.

Sure if you really want the absolute best, you'll have to save up for the Neumann U87/U67/U47. But these are the very top end.

For hip hop vocals either the TLM102 or TLM103 should suffice.

But everyone has their own opinions here and they're entitled to their opinions. The above 3 mics should be good enough for the hip hop vocals. Enough said.
