Kanye West had a huge smile on his face on Monday, May 11 and it was for a good reason.
The 37-year-old rapper received an honorary doctoral degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago at it's annual commencement.
'The College Dropout' star couldn't resist being happy as he mounted the podium at one of the most prestigious schools for art in country to deliver a powerful speech ''I am a pop artist, so my medium is public opinion, and the world is my canvas,'' the now Dr. West, Kanye began his speech.
He then made the audience laugh as he poked fun at his unapologetic behavior (that has seen him storm the stage at two different award ceremonies, defending the singer Beyoncé over the years).
He was also congratulated by his wife, Mrs Kim Kardashian West on twitter.
