Toby McKeehan, or TobyMac, as he is professionally known, is a Grammy Award-winning Christian hip-hop recording artist, music producer, songwriter, and author. TobyMac grew up in northern Virginia suburbs in the shadow of Washington, D.
C., where he fell in love with rap and hip-hop. While attending Liberty University at Lynchburg, VA, in the mid-1980s, he met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith (aka/ Kevin Max), and the three friends formed the highly influential Christian pop group DC Talk, which mixed elements of gospel, grunge, and hip-hop into an immensely successful hybrid.
When DC Talk went on hiatus in 2000, Mac went solo, releasing the well-received Momentum in 2001. A mixture of urban rock and hip-hop, Momentum garnered five Dove Awards and a Grammy nomination and spawned the remix album, Re: Mix Momentum, which was released in 2003.
TobyMac has charted 20 solo singles on Billboard's Christian Songs list. In 2018, TobyMac released The Elements, his seventh studio album. The Elements was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album at the 62nd Grammy Awards.
TobyMac has previously won the Grammy for that category with his albums This Is Not a Test and Eye on It. In 2009, TobyMac won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album with Alive and Transported.
