Chop by ear and put your own sloppy micro delay in there naturally.

This. And then turn quantize off. Drums, percussion, turn the quantize off!!!

I'm "eh" on the drive to turn quantize off. Maybe its because of the blend of electronic styled music for me, as well as the doubled bpm I work in (anything under say 90 bpms, gets doubled - trap style, so 80 bpm is now 160), so I have the granularity to fit into a groove/pocket/be on grid, while not necessarily being "on grid". With that said, its only on the foundational rhythm pieces that I'll do it, say if its boombap, my snare/clap and maybe (2) of my kicks that fall somewhere in between (or hats in trap), but everything else I typically turn it off.
