From my album, 'Storyteller'
This is the official music video of 'Had To Say'.
Some of you probably know I released another version of this before, but had to delete it due to lack of video quality and interest with footage. However, in this version, you will get better quality and interesting footage, rather than me being inside an abandon warehouse all the time!
Not sure if any of you have noticed on my YouTube channel banner, but I have switched my uploading schedule to monthly videos now. So every month you will get a new video from me, which'll be more creative rather than me being in my studio, filming the same boring two angles.
Thank you, and I hope you enjoyed the music video!

‘Had to Say’ is the hard-hitting first single from West Melbourne local Adam Purski and is taken from his debut album ‘Storyteller’, released in May of 2015. Adam has been building his loyal YouTube fanbase with regular uploads of videos created at home and in abandoned buildings in Melbourne’s Westside, fostering a rabid online community of subscribers that eagerly await his fortnightly videos.
As the Aussie hip hop community swells with fans, the need for the traditional major label path has become obsolete, with artists like Adam Purski creating and pursuing their dreams from their bedrooms and local surroundings inspired by rap battles and hip hop artists from around the globe.
His debut album ‘Storyteller’ was released earlier in 2015, and ‘Had to Say’ is the single and video release, shot in an abandoned building in West Melbourne, called the ‘Bradmill Factory’ providing the perfect background for this uncompromising track. His lyrics inspired by artists such as Eminem and Bliss N Eso. The instrumental is produced by Antames, and is inspired from the hugely popular YouTube channel ‘Epic Rap Battles of History’ – particularly the Moses vs. Santa Claus battle.
Although inspired by artists such as Brother Ali, Eminem, and locally by Hilltop Hoods and Bliss N Eso, Adam Purski’s unique style shines through. His decision to focus on his very active YouTube community means that he can keep his music fresh, current and distinctly his own.
Watch out for Adam Purski and ‘Had To Say’. This artist is blistering through and coming up online, and he has a lot to say.
