D. Phillips aka S.O.P. was born & raised in Toronto, yeah he had some early years in government housing but still claims they were the best years of his life.
Now living on the out skirts of Toronto he still has love for his old neighborhoods as memories never die.
"I like to keep one foot in the Ghetto at all times" he says.
Throughout the years he always had a love for music, all music, and eventually started to dabble in sampling to create tracks to rap or sing over as a hobby.
Realizing he had talent after comments from peers, he decided to take a step into the industry by launching his first productions and using the name Set It Off Productions, hence the name S.O.P.
Later he renamed and registered as Flow City Records Publishing which he still owns today.
