Kanye West Receives Honorary Doctorate, No Longer A College Dropout

blame it on Meka May 11, 2015

You may now refer to him “Dr. West” from here on out.

Kanye – musician, fashionista, grandiose public speaker – joined the ranks of Jeff Koons, Marina Abramovic, and Yoko Ono, as the School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago bestowed upon him an honorary doctorate in fine arts today (May 11th). After performing at the rather epic Bulls-Cavaliers game the day prior, Kanye attended the school’s commencement program to receive his degree, and also gave a brief speech in which he vowed to “make our lives better,” joked about George W. Bush, and more. Watch it in its entirety below.

I think this song is appropriate now more than ever…
