Phi Life Cypher, or Phi-Life Cypher, also known as PLC, is a British hip hop group based in Luton, comprising two MCs, Si Phili and Life MC, and DJ Nappa.


Phi Life Cypher featured on an earlier version of Clint Eastwood. However Damon Albarn and Dan the Automator decided to use Del The Funky Homosapien instead. This version was later officially released on G-Sides, a compilation of the B-sides from the first three singles which was released in Japan and quickly followed with international releases in early 2002. Phi Life Cypher, did however perform the track with Gorillaz at the Brit Awards, featuring the band in 3D animation, weaving in and out of each other on four large screens along with their rap accompaniment. Phi Life Cypher also collaborated with Gorillaz on The Sounder and an unreleased version of Starshine, uploaded to their official SoundClound.

The group has toured with and appeared on tracks by Gorillaz and DJ Vadim.
