Kanye West is now officially a doctor after receiving an honorary degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

West dropped out of college when he was 20 but has now graduated with a doctorate.

The newly crowned Dr. West was recognised for “transformative, genre-defying work” at the ceremony, because Kanye is definitely the kind of guy who needs an ego boost.

The usually confident West, however, admitted he was nervous on this occasion:

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

The college decided to honour the star after a member of staff read that the 37-year-old always wished he’d gone there.

In his acceptance speech, West added:

I am a pop artist. So my medium is public opinion and the world is my canvas.

It was such a special occasion, that Kanye even managed to crack a smile!

Dr. Kanye West!!!!!!! I'm so proud of you baby & I know your mom would be so proud too!!!! 🎓
