    Default Kanye West Receives Honorary Doctorate at School Of Art Institute Of Chicago

    Kanye West Receives Honorary Doctorate - Listen to His Acceptance Speech at SAIC!








    Kanye West flashes a big smile while receiving an honorary doctorate at School Of Art Institute Of Chicago on Monday (May 11) in Chicago, Ill.
    “When I was giving a lecture at Oxford, I brought up this school because when I went out on that mission to create other spaces — apparel, film, performance — it would’ve been easier if I could have said I had a degree at the Art Institute of Chicago,” the 37-year-old rapper shared during his speech. Listen to his speech below!

    The faculty of that institution should be ashamed of themselves for going along with this idiotic decision by a small, select group of honorary degree committee members. It's embarrassing for this entire college to participate in this. Shame. Shame. Shame.

    how much did he pay for it? maybe he gave them a big donation so they would 'dedicate' the 'west wing' in his honor.

    Awe, he looks happy here. I think his mom would be proud, and that's probably what he's thinking, too. Stoked for the kook.

    He should smile more. His smile is pretty cute.

    Must be a big day for him. He always wanted to be accepted as an art-teeeeest, and now he has been. I guess that means he will only become more insufferable.

    For sure. Or maybe it'll humble him a bit, as in, "Look mama, I finally got that degree that you wanted me to have so bad. I've accomplished my dream and yours, I can calm down now." Unlikely, but we'll see.

    I would approve if it was a Doctorate in Stupid.

    I don't understand. The Art Institute??? Why?? Shameful. Chicagoans don't want to claim him.
