FIFE rap artist Mitchell has recorded a compilation album featuring musicians from around the world to raise mental health awareness and plans to generously donate a proportion of the proceeds to Support in Mind Scotland.

Mitchell - real name Calum Mitchell - a young up-and-coming rapper from Cowdenbeath who has experienced mental ill health himself, has released the album entitled 'Make Success a Certain'.

As well as his own work, it includes tracks from guests from the United States and Kenya, as well as emerging Scottish talent. Guests on the 20-song album include Miss Bossy, Goose McKenzie, Skyy Boii, Will Blaze, Syko, Big Tee, Jarris Alexander, Amy Louise Rogers, King James and Replay.

Mitchell said: "I got into rapping when I was about 8. My cousin listened to Tupac and I was instantly hooked. I started rapping to his tracks when I was 10. I started to jot rhymes down but didn't really start writing properly till I was 13.

"The reason I support mental health and chose Support in Mind Scotland is I suffer from Bipolar Disorder and I know how it feels to have a mental illness. I just wanted to give something back to a local charity."

It's an exciting time for Calum, who will be releasing his first solo EP 'Punkumentary' on 29 September. He also plans to donate proceeds from the EP to Support in Mind Scotland.

"Having bipolar myself I wanted to put a track on it called 'So You Think You Should Know'. It describes how my mental health makes me feel at times. I'm glad to be helping Support in Mind Scotland as I want to support them in every step of my career."
