Creating music is an art so there are no definite rules as to how one should do it. If you think something sounds good, then go ahead with it no matter what other people say is 'correct'.

From a purely technical perspective it makes a lot of sense to use a compressor prior to applying an 8 bit quantization so you can squeeze as much detail as possible into that limited dynamic range. It is harder though to see the reason why one would apply even more dynamic compression on the audio after this quantization. One reason could be if you like the effect of the quantization noise which is not totally weird. It is one of the reasons why 8 bit audio has this 'crunchy' sound that many people like.
