Kanye West made his mark in the music industry as a college dropout, but now, that’s all about to change.
“I was a gifted artist since age five and won national competitions and went to art school,” Kanye said. “I’m actually getting an honorary doctorate on May 5th from the Art Institute of Chicago.”
Ah, the classic Kanye humble (or not-so-humble) brag.
Yeezy famously dropped out of Chicago State University at the age of 20 back in 1997 to focus on his music career and used that educational sacrifice as the name for his groundbreaking debut album.
After ‘Ye gets his degree in hand, Dr. Dre won’t be the only superproducer with the D R designation in his name.
Congratulations, Dr. West! We're proud of you.
