I agree with con?one... you must be overcompressing on the way in, or overdoing the de-esser section. I've used a 103 with a VoxBox, and seen it used on several rap records, and never experienced or heard of a problem like you're describing.

Sure, there are better mics out there, but those two pieces should and have done the job. A female singer wouldn't hit the compressor as hard (assuming the settings are similar), so I'd take a look at that.
