As I type this one, pulling up one of my favorite albums, Welcome To The Freak Show. If you’re old DC Talk fan like me, this should get your attention. tobyMac (one of the DC Talk trio) has a web slice, titled tobyMac Webslice. It was built by MetaBlocks, who I’m seeing all over Nashville these days.

Now, if you’re saying, “Who is DC Talk?”, DC Talk (Wikipedia) had a unique sound in the 80’s, as a Christian music group who started with rap/hip hop. Later, they turned to rock. They are considered one of the biggest acts in contemporary Christian music. Today, Toby McKeehan (aka tobyMac)  pursues his solo career, and also co-owns Gotee Records (artist list here).
