are they christian ?
Yes, they are a Christian band. The lead singer is actually quite possibly the dude responsible for popularizing the name "Nevaeh," or "heaven" spelled backwards (it's what he named one of his daughters with his wife).

They were literally labeled as a rap group when they first started. Rap beats and rapping.
And let's not forget this little gem.

well now, that's taking a trip on the way back machine :LOL: just a few years before I first knew of them.

Man I remember that song when it came out. Rap was not my fav but I did enjoy DC Talk. I believe they were the first group that brought rap into Christian music (well at least somewhat decent lol). I’d say they were between rock and contemporary.

They were far from the first to bring in rap, just the first to gain any real popularity. They took a more pop mainstream approach while others attempted a more authentic approach, thus the lack of mainstream popularity.
