As one-third of Christian music's ruling rock triumvirate, dc Talk, Toby McKeehan (aka TobyMac) already has more than a decade of hits under his belt with pals Kevin Max and Michael Tait. This year, each has taken a solo turn with Max and Tait delivering their albums this past summer. McKeehan's own solo venture is everything fans could expect. Outside the confines of the group, he leans more into rap/ hip-hop; the tracks explode with thought-provoking lyrics and percolating grooves. Opening track "Get This Party Started" sets the tone for the jammin' good times that follow. Highlights include the soulful "J-Train," a collaboration with Kirk Franklin; "Tru-Dog," a hypnotic interlude from his 3-year old son; and "What's Going Down" poignantly examines some of life's harsh realities. Expect response from longtime and new fans alike.—DEP
