Sheplife is the second solo studio album by Australian rapper Briggs, released in August 2014 via Golden Era Records.

Adam Briggs is an Indigenous Australian rapper, comedy writer, record label owner, and actor who performs as Briggs. Briggs became well known as a solo rapper, signing with Golden Era Records in 2009, before co-founding the hip hop duo A.B. Original in 2016.

As a solo artist, Briggs has released one EP, Homemade Bombs in 2009, and two albums, The Blacklist (2010) and Sheplife (2014). He has also made appearances on songs with Hilltop Hoods, the Funkoars, Drapht and The Last Kinection. In 2015, Briggs founded his own record label, Bad Apples Music, which has signed several Indigenous hip-hop artists and houses A.B. Original, a joint project with Trials from the Funkoars.

Extending his career beyond music, Briggs has appeared in several television series on ABC: as a writer and actor for the second season of the sketch comedy Black Comedy in 2016; playing the role of Maliyan in the drama series Cleverman in the same year; and becoming a regular cast member on news satire program The Weekly with Charlie Pickering in 2017.

In 2012 Briggs started work on recording his next album to be titled Sheplife. The title of the album is a reference to the local lifestyle in his hometown of Shepparton in Victoria. He is quoted as follows about the album:  “…It was a pretty aggressive record. I said to Jay when I was working on stuff for the ShepLife album, "If The Blacklist was the punch in the face, ShepLife is why I punched you in the face." Shep Life's kinda like the prequel…”

The title track “Sheplife” was released with a promotional video that consists of footage filmed in Shepparton, including sections in which Briggs is rapping in the back seat of a driving car. The first single from the album was “The Hurt” which features a collaboration with Indigenous Australian artist Gurrumul. The two artists performed the song live for NAIDOC Week at the studios of the triple j radio station in July 2014.

The second single released from the album was “Bad Apples” and featured a music video again shot in Shepparton "at the crossroads just by the Murchison East Railway Hotel & Train station, an iconic and humble piece of history which sadly has since burnt down.”

Sheplife debuted at #16 on the Australian Albums charts.
