What is the ratio for vocals?

How do you compress rap vocals?
Generally, in normal vocals 2:1 to 3:1 ratio is good to compress the upper dynamics. But when the vocal is aggressive you need to compress more. So you have to increase the ratio up to 7:1. Probably, you would find the sweet spot anywhere 5:1 to 6:1.
