the blackSoil project
Just the mention of the words Rap or Hip Hop conjure up this "tougher-than-life" image that artist of that format try to portray. In the case of Rahlo, the innovative artist behind the blackSoil project, all you get is the truth and real life. Rahlo gives a clear insight into himself
and the dedicated messages in his music that encompass his own progressive and experimental style.
Purposely not building upon the usual musical and songwriting influences of his genre, Rahlo combines his love of different artists for his inspiration. Artists such as Earth Wind & Fire, whose songs had an immediate connection through their sound and the depth of their lyrics; the Isley Brothers, who at the time were radically different in their belief of combining Rock sounds with R&B; Parliament, who believed in having a good time with their music while rejecting any restrictions or confinement in their image and ideas; to Al Green who was simply and uniquely himself, and who believed in becoming a success on his own and in his own terms.
The blackSoil project debut release entitled "Ulterior Motive" contains a collection of songs that focus on the elements of real life and how we live it. For example in i.r.o.C., Rahlo touches on how powerful the use of words are in our lives and how the mere use of them shape the relationships and the world around us. So often people use words to communicate to each other without first thinking or reflecting upon their true meaning or impact. This song is a call to action to concentrate on the message we want to communicate. Not for the short term benefits but for the long term enrichment.
In onanOn, he expresses a time of reflection that we all individually think about but rarely discuss with others. The thought that no matter what happens to us personally in our lives, the world and the other people in it just keep going on. It's a statement or call to action to become more involved in the lives of others around us.
Ironically, with that thought in mind Rahlo presents new worLd order, which explores how the world has become an increasingly illogical, hostile and unsafe place. He even questions when does it all come to a head? How will it change?
The blackSoil project is not innovative because Rahlo has decided to create something musically different than other artists in his genre. The blackSoil project is innovative because of the way Rahlo explores questions surrounding the issue of freedom--true freedom. The freedom to be your own person, the person you were created to be. The freedom to be the best human being you can be and challenge others to do the same.
In a time when everyone is learning or defining what freedom means to them, can there be a better definition or explanation?
