An 87 would sound great, and take lots of SPL, don't worry about that.
A 58 would work, but won't sound half as good. If you have the budget, an 87 is the way to go.

Also, I think you are a little confused with your model numbers here. A Neve 1073 is a preamp, a Universal Audio 1176 is a Compressor / Limiter. A combination of the two would be great for a rap and RnB.

Good luck
