This is a huge win for Meek Mill. 

Mill becomes the first rapper to receive the Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award for his efforts in criminal justice reform. 

The organization, which was founded in honor of the late Mandela, awarded the Philadelphia native with the Changemaker Humanitarian Award. Meek will take to Instagram to post his honor and also reveal that he has a new freestyle titled “Mandela (Freestyle) dropping.

“Blessings… I got the Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award. Thank you.”

In 2019, Meek Mill teamed up with Jay- Z, Michael Rubin, and others to launch the REFORM Alliance. The nonprofit organization has since made efforts for criminal justice and probation reform. 

Congratulations to Meek. Celebrate with him at Summerjam on Sunday, August 22nd, at MetLife Stadium. Get those tickets right now
