Kanye West Awarded Honorary Doctorate in Chicago

Kanye dropped out of college when he was 20, calling his first album The College Dropout. But Kanye West has finally graduated.

He’s was awarded an honorary degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

It means he’s now technically Doctor West.

He was recognised for “transformative, genre-defying work” at a ceremony there.

But the man who doesn’t usually seem to lack confidence admitted he did feel the nerves.

“I don’t feel that feeling a lot, the nerves of humility and modesty when being honoured,” he said.

“A humanisation a reality of being recognised. And all I thought as I sit here kind of shaking a little bit is ‘I need to get rid of that feeling.'”

n his acceptance speech he said: “I am a pop artist. So my medium is public opinion and the world is my canvas”.

He also said people shouldn’t feel the need to apologise for their opinions.

‘I’m sorry’ is something that you can use a lot, it gives you the opportunity to give your opinion, apologise for it, and give you opinion again,” he laughed.

The college decided to honour thim after a member of staff read that the he’d always wished he’d gone there to study.
