S.O.A.P. is a rapper/producer duo consisting of Toronto poet/rapper Scribe and Hamilton-based producer Onglish. After Onglish produced several beats on Scribe’s debut project in 2015, the two agreed to work closely to create a culture of risk and trust, pushing each other to expand their abilities. Drawing inspiration from Timbaland, Kaytranada, Mick Jenkins, Anderson.Paak and others, S.O.A.P. has a unique sound that plays inside the box in unorthodox ways. By aiming at something more emotional than flawless, Scribe & Onglish Aren’t Perfect (S.O.A.P.).
