From the whole of the Mixtape Madness team, we would like to congratulate Jamal Edwards on attaining an MBE. Check out his post on this great news:

I’m honoured to be one of the youngest people awarded with an MBE on this years New Honours list. Never in a million years did I ever think I would receive such an accolade.

The world won’t help you I learnt that early, you have to help yourself, you have to invest yourself to better your life. This too, means that we as the YOUTH actually can change the world, you just have to be proactive then the world will notice you when the time is right.

Thanks to everyone who’s supported. Here’s to
