Kanye West Receives Honorary Doctorate Degree

(Radio.com) Kanye West's early album all played on the same education theme, with The College Dropout, Late Registration, and Graduation drawing an arc that helped launch the career of one of contemporary music's greats.

Now, the college dropout has a degree, earning an honorary doctoral degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago last week. West showed up for the ceremony, sporting a cap and gown and walking with his class.
