Info:If the commercial succes of the Rap'Sures in the nineteen eighties showed that holyhiphop had a viable place in the christian music scene, then DC Talk was the force behind accepting the musical style within the industry in the beginning of the nineteen nineties.

Crossover
Although DC Talk is more known for their crossover sound of rock and rap from their highly succesful "Jesus Freak" album (1995) they did start out as a hip hop band. Just listen to their self titled debut album from 1989, but their rap sound was soon to be mixed with pop music as the third record "Free At Last" proves in 1992.

Bestselling
This would become one of their bestselling albums, 1,100,000 records, only to be surpassed by Jesus Freak at 1,245,000 records.

Members
DC Talk consisting of the members: TobyMac, adding to the rap factor in the band's sound, Michael Tait, turning more to the rock side and Kevin Max showing his heartfelt emotions in the songs finally did make a difference.

Rock
The sound of DC Talk would evolve in nearly a decade from hiphop to a melodic rock band as their last album "Supernatural" showed in 1998.
The year 2001 saw the release of solo material from bandmembers Michael Tait and TobyMac with TobyMac staying the closest to DC Talk's hip hop roots.

Dove Awards
In 1991 the group received a Dove award at the GMA Awards ceremony for "Nu Thang" (1990) in the category "Hip Hop/Rap album of the Year".

Dove Awards: Singles
DC Talk won several times in the category "Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year" at the GMA awards ceremony in:
- 1992: "I luv Rap Music" - Nu Thang (1990).
- 1993: "Can I Get A Witness" - Nu Thang (1990).
- 1994: Socially Acceptable - Free at Last (1992).
- 1995: " Luv Is A Verb" - Free at Last (1992).
