It stands for Decent Christian Talk...that's what they said in an interview. Sounds kind of corny now, but they probably thought of it back when that would've been cool. Didn't e-mail it to you...what's the point of the boards if I do that?

Time Ta Jam (from the self-titled album, 1989)
"D's for decent, and you will agree
Quite explicit yet rated G
Because I rhyme hard and I speak facts
No need to curse when I burst a rap
C's for Christian cuz that's what I am
Not a soft sissy, I know how to jam
Pack a party for the Father above
Intense rhymes tell of ultimate love
Talk is for the lyrics, they're full of spirit
If you are atheistic you better fear it
They're from the word, you ain't heard?
It's my decision that your vision is blurred"

When DC Talks (from Nu Thang, 1990)
"D is for decent, I mean what I say
But obsene, I don't play that way
C is for Christ to the I A N
That's right, y'all, I'm born again
Talk's my tool, my gift to use
R-A-P to spread the news of God
Now you know the part
Tell the world what's on your heart"

They don't say it stands for decent christian anymore, though. They say that the second definition of it is for District of Colombia, the city they met at. They went to Liberty University together.

I know my dc Talk. I know A LOT about Toby too.

For example, not many people know that Toby's real name is Kevin Michael McKeehan. Ironically, it's the first name of the other members of dc talk so he goes by Toby. His older brother gave him the nickname Toby way back when he was in the womb because he was due in October. It was at first Tober, and then it got shortened to Toby.

Or that his brother-in-law is Mark Stuart from Audio Adrenaline. When dc talk moved to Tennessee, Toby's sister, Kerri went to live with him for a while. She met Mark and got married to him. Which is why Audio A has a lot of ties with Gotee records.

I knew that stuff...hehehe

I believe that the district of columbia meaning came first...forefront encouraged them to take on the meaning of "decent Christian" in light of all the negative in mainstream rap...

I prefer the washington dc meaning...
