Video : No More Dropout Tag As Kanye West Receives Honorary Doctorate From Art Institute Of Chicago

Congratulations as Kanye West will no longer to addressed as a school dropout !

Kanye West received an honorary doctorate from the Art Institute of Chicago on Monday May 11, and the rapper gave quite the odd acceptance speech, talking about everything from George W. Bush to his own upbringing.

"I am a pop artist. So my medium is public opinion. And the world is my canvas," he started out. "I felt my nerves a bit. And I don’t feel that feeling a lot. The nerves, and modesty, with being honored. A humanization, a reality, of being recognized," he continued.

Then came the really weird rant!

"And it’s these Floyd Mayweather belts that are needed, to prove what I’ve been saying my entire life. Whether it’s the co-sign of Paul McCartney grabbing me and saying, it’s okay, he doesn’t bite white people, or the New York Times [magazine] cover, or the Time ‘Most Influential’ cover. And now, a doctorate, at the Art Institute of Chicago. When I was giving a lecture at Oxford, I brought up this school, because when I went on that mission to create in other spaces, it would have been easier if I could have said, ‘I have a degree from the Art Institute of Chicago.’ Thank you," he concluded.

Introducing Dr. Yeezy!
