Everyone seems to be digging the King Robot LP that I graced you readers with a couple weeks ago. Due to popular demand, I have now been given a new treat by Lee Harvey Oswald to unleash on our readers. It’s another taste of their Zone 7 crew which consists of producers Conspiracy, Mr. Fish, and Threepeeoh, emcees Reid Richards, Verbal the Erfling, Vinnie Del Negro, and Glympse, and those nasty cuts by the infamous DJ Spytek.
This time it’s Lee Harvey Oswald’s own self-titled LP that I get to bring you and it features the whole crew showboating their talents! I can promise you that this is only going to be up for a limited time so you better make sure you cop it while the getting is good!
And also, if you’re diggin’ their style of eclectic hip-hop make sure you go and check these guys out on April 10th as they headline a show with another group called the Deaf Judges at the 529 Bar down in the East ATL Village.
This album is absolutely fantastic but to truly understand the whole Lee Harvey Oswald experience you must go check these guys out live. You haven’t seen live local hip-hop in the ATL til you’ve seen a LHO show.
Here’s some of my favorites:
Enjoy, and support local music!

King Robot are MC, Reid Richards and producer, Conspiracy. These guys have been doing their thing in the A for sometime and have finally dropped this project online for FREE. Reid Richards owned Mic Club at the Apache Cafe, and Conspiracy currently does the beats for Lee Harvey Oswald. They have had this album shelved for sometime and I can remember these guys making beats and recording this in the Dunwoody Mansion. If you haven’t heard Reid Richards on the mic this is a great starting point and if you dig it, go check out some more of these guys when Lee Harvey Oswald takes the stage this Friday, at Lenny’s.

Edan over the last few years has crafted a couple of the most brilliant hip-hop albums that have been largely unheard by the masses. 2002′s, Primitive Plus was his introduction to the hip-hop community. It carries a sound reminiscent of the Beastie Boys with their same kind of New York-style production. I am a sucker for his kind of battling sound and he really upped the bar with 2005′s Beauty and the Beat. With that album, he maintained his New York roots but crafted a production style more reminiscent of the Anticon camp. It has a stoner-rock feel to the beats that makes me yearn to hear more production from this guy. Both albums come highly recommended and he’s got a new album in the works but there’s no news on a release date.

You Suck – Edan – Primitive Plus
Rock and Roll (w/ Radja)- Edan – Beauty and the Beat
The Science of the Two – Edan – Beauty and the Beat
Here’s a video of his ridiculous live performance where he both MCs and DJs at the same time:
Also in Hip-Hop news:
Local MC, Reid Richards has been crafting an interesting album with his producer Conspiracy at the helm over the last few months. They are recording under the moniker, King Robot and the tracks are rather different from most of the hip-hop coming out of the ATL these days. He’s pulling alot of the same tactics as the Edan camp. His music is largely immersed in sampled beats and battle rhymes but has an energy and a lyrical flair that I really dig. Here’s a couple of tracks from their forthcoming LP:
King Robot also has a flair for the freestyle. Here’s a sample of his antics:
