Who Is This Man? In this case, the man is John Robinson.
Formerly known as Lil Sci from Scienz of Life, a group who had put out records on Bobbito Garcias Fondle Em imprint and Sub Verse Music in the late 90s and early 2000s. Robinson later went on to release his debut solo album I Am Not For Sale, followed by a collaborative effort called Lil Sci and Carlos Nino present Whats The Science? After working with John on previous projects such as King Ghedoraah and multiple Scienz of Life albums, MF Doom suggested they embark on a full length concept album, to be executive produced by The Villain himself where Lil Sci would take on his government name, John Robinson. The result is Who Is This Man?, an incredible group of songs produced entirely by Doom, with DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies laying down all the cuts. The album was completed four years ago but due to
complications it remained in limbo and unreleased. Fast forward to 2009 and the project has been picked up by the good folks at High
Water Music and will finally get the official release it deserves. Who Is This Man? showcases Dooms diversity as a producer and
contains arguably the best display of his talents from behind the boards since his debut album Doomsday. From the dark tone of
Black Gold to the melodic love tale of There She Goes, this album is filled with Dooms signature sound bites and production style.
He also lends a verse to the album’s closing track Sorcerers. John Robinson shows incredible lyrical range throughout the album, like
on Indy 102 where he breaks down the indie Hip Hop grind or on the aforementioned Black Gold with its social commentary on the
war for oil. Join John Robinson and MF Doom on this journey and see if you can figure out who this man really is...
