It's with great excitement that Sony Music Entertainment Australia introduces Indigenous rapper, comedy writer, author, and social commentator Briggs, who makes up one half of the award winning hip-hop duo A.B Original and is the Founding CEO of Bad Apples Music. Collaborating with Sony Music and Fox Sports, Briggs brings you his latest single -Here' featuring Caiti Baker, which was written as the new anthem for Fox Sports for the 2017 NRL season though The Fox League Channel.
'I created this track as the theme for the Fox League channel – the song reflects the journey of the Indigenous players – who give so much excitement and leadership to the sport and community week in and week out, not just the specific Indigenous round," said Briggs.
Briggs collaborated with the 2017 NT Song Of The Year winner Caiti Baker to record the track, and the music video for -Here' was directed and produced by the FOX SPORTS creative team. The cover artwork for the single was designed by esteemed Indigenous artist Reko Rennie.

Adam Briggs is an Indigenous Australian rapper, owner of Bad Apples Music, a writer for multiple comedy series and an actor hailing from Shepparton, Victoria. Well renowned and respected in the Australian Hip-Hop scene, Briggs dropped his ground breaking self-released debut EP Homemade Bombs in 2009, which marked the arrival of the powerful and unique voice on the scene. He was quickly embraced by local legends, Adelaide's Funkoars and Perth's Drapht, then The Hilltop Hoods gave his first major injection into the industry – the opening slot on their sold out national tour. Since then, Briggs has toured tirelessly around the country with Hilltop Hoods as well as supporting international tours with the likes of Ice Cube, Yelawolf, DOOM, Ghostface Killah and Pharoahe Monch.
Musically and personally, Briggs recognises that his legacy is about supporting younger artists to strive for excellence and achieve success. As a result, he founded Bad Apples Music, an all Indigenous record label to create sustainable and meaningful pathways for emerging Indigenous artists – starting with MC's Philly, Nooky and Birdz.
In 2015 Briggs took to the screen and has generated a regular seat at the writers table for hit ABC show -Black Comedy'. He has also been in the front of the camera in 2016/17 as a major supporting role in the series -Cleverman' which screened in 2016 and is a regular correspondent of Charlie Pickering's -The Weekly' show.
