He accomplished a lot in his brief time on earth, his family will be without him and this is very sad to say for one so young,a life well lived and an example for the younger generation.

A true star who used his fame to help young black people of a similar background succeed in life , and saved them from being sucked into a life of drug dealing and knife crime. His influence and force for good will be sadly missed.

wow, I feel so ignorant for listening to all this artists and watching hundreds of hours of youtube without knowing who Jamal Edwards was. Seems he was really influential in pushing forward UK music. To have had such an impact and still die when he is barely 30 is crazy.

Mr Fishmon
Mr Fishmon:
I don’t understand how a short illness can kill a 31 year old. What the hell is a ‘short illness’? I wouldn’t consider a brain aneurysm or heart attack an illness more like a fatal episode. A fatal illness takes time. Cancer etc. What is a ‘short illness’ that turns fatal?
Anyway. RIP young man. Very sad news
