Christian music's favorite former dcTalker, tobyMac, the hip-hop media mogul, has sold about 175,000 copies of his latest disc, Welcome To Diverse City. Meanwhile, his previous GRAMMY-nominated release, Momentum, is nearing half a million in sales.

Here are highlights from tobyMac land:

  • Welcome To Diverse City has been nominated for a Grammy
  • tobyMac was featured in USA Today, America's newspaper, December 28, 2004
  • His song, "Gone", spent 10 weeks at #1 on the R&R CHR chart and several weeks at #1 on CRW CHR in addition to claiming the #1 spot on both the R&R and CRW Christian Rock charts. The single was also tied for the most-adds at AC radio before the holidays, and is already in the Top 20 there! With "Gone" recently at #9 on the R&R rock chart, his new rock single, "Slam," was the most-added at Rock radio this week, so you'll be hearing that one on the radio right about now.
  • And for all y'all wondering when you'll see Christian music's favorite hip-hop/rock artist in person, take note: tobyMac will be co-headlining a spring tour with Audio Adrenaline, Kutless and Hawk Nelson.
