Adam Briggs is the ultimate multi-tasker. As a solo artist and with A.B. Original he’s become one of Australia’s most respected rappers, but he’s also an actor, scriptwriter, children's book author and activist.
As a student growing up in the regional Victorian town of Shepparton, though, he was told he’d never amount to anything.
So how has this man who was told he had no prospects, who’s had to fight and claw for every opportunity, got to where he is today?
That’s what we’re here to find out.
More than a performer and an artist, Briggs has also become a role model for young Indigenous Australians, and he talks about coming to terms with that in this interview. He also discusses the backlash and abuse he’s been subjected to throughout his career, and the lessons he’s learned as he’s dealt with it.
