Meek Mill revealed to all his followers an award that was presented to him by Nelson Mandela Foundation.

The Philly rapper has been hard at work over the years fighting criminal justice reform in the United States. He has received plenty of nominations and even awards from established organizations such as Bet, Billboard, and the Grammys. Mill has also helped co-found the REFORM Alliance with Michael Rubin and Jay-Z. They work together with others in entertainment, politics, and law enforcement with the hopes of revamping or eliminating certain restrictions and mandates in the criminal system.
Meek Mill has also teamed with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam regarding reforming the state’s probation bill, and today (August 12),  he shared that he has been recognized by the Nelson Mandela Foundation. 

 

The Philadelphia rapper shared a photo of his award to Instagram along with a “Dream Chasers” necklace. “Blessings.. I got ‘the Nelson Mandela humanitarian award’ Thankyou Rip to the great Nelson Mandela,” he wrote. “I ain’t grow up playing ball I had a smith & western* because where I’m from it’s very hard to turn 27′ #survivors.”
