TobyMac talks about Christian hip-hop, the evolution of his music, his kids' favorite artists and more



At age 51, Christian hip-hop artist TobyMac shows no signs of slowing down.

Twenty-five years into one of the biggest careers in Christian music, the former DC Talk member is on the road supporting his seventh solo album, This Is Not a Test, with a show at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa. (Click here for details.) But this is far from a farewell tour.

"I want to make music as long as I believe that it is still resonating with people where they are," TobyMac said in a phone interview. "As long as I am still passionate about it and believing in the songs I am writing. I am wide open to doing music for another 10 or 15 years. However, if at the same time I feel in my heart that it is time to slow down, and then I am willing to do that, too. I love it though. I am still as passionate about it today as I was 20 years ago."
