Starting with a hip hop career that has seen him tour alongside the likes KRS-ONE, Ice T, 50 Cent, Hilltop Hoods and Paul Kelly - it soon became clear his penmanship also translated to the screen. This second wind as a TV writer bad him script and star in the likes of Black Comedy, The Other Guy, Cleverman, and Charlie Pickering’s The Weekly.
More recently, his off-screen work has landed him in a writing chair for American TV icon Matt Groening’s new Netflix series Disenchanted.
From his break-out rap album ‘Homemade Bombs’ in 2009, Briggs almost instantly joined the vast number of his Yorta Yorta countrymen and women to have infiltrated the mainstream Australian psyche - as sports superstars, writers, activists, politicians, pastors, business identities and musicians.
Briggs’s new EP, Always Was, includes the first single ‘Extra Extra’ and the most recent ‘Go To War’ featuring the smooth voice of friend and collaborator Thelma Plum. Keep watching as there’s more to come from this quadruple-threat from Shepparton.
