Info:BlackSoil Project consists of MC Rahlo and DJ Level. The BlackSoil Project has performed besides the US in Bulgaria, England and in Soweto, South Africa. Rahlo lives in Indianapolis.

Dead Poet Society
He was part of the Dead Poet Society together with DJ Dust. Dead Poet Society changed into Mars ILL after Soulheir the Manchild became a member. After Dust's move to Atlanta Rahlo went solo and thus the BlackSoil Project was born. DJ Level did most of the production on the album The calm before the storm.

Debut album
The first full length album is released in 2004 called "The Calm Before The Storm". His debut album got remixed by DJ Level in 2005 and is available as a download.

Hurricane relief
Blacksoil released the Hurricane Katrina Relief CD : Live in 2005 to raise funds for the hurricane disaster, which hit the shores of the United States on the 25th of August 2005.

Loss
The year 2006 was a difficult year for the rapper and his family. Because Rahlo and his wife lost their daughter Alyssa Jo Porter, due to her premature birth on July 13, 2006.
As the MC states on January 31, 2007 : "As I look back on it all, I realize that Alyssa, she was beautiful by the way, has affected me in a deep and profound way. I think, somehow, that we're better people for having gone through it, but I wouldn't want to do it again."

DVD
In January 2007 the Blacksoil Project releases a live DVD, including a bonus CD, entitled: Live in Concert at the Indianapolis Music & Arts Festival.

New album
The new release will be an instrumental album entitled "Out of the Silent Planet". It is inspired by C.S. Lewis' science fiction trilogy.
