Kanye West can add the title of Doctor to his expanding credentials after receiving an honourary doctorate in Fine Arts from the School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago (SAIC). West who was born and raised in the windy city was given this honour recently and he took his wife Kim Kardashian with him to the special occassion. In a video recorded by the institution, Yeezy walks up to stage to receive his PhD for his "transformative, genre-defying work" but soon walks off after he reaches the podium to roaring laughter.

When he turns back, he addresses the crowd by saying, "I'm sorry, that was just my opinion" to which attendees give a hearty applause.

'Ye continues the rest of his speech by beginning with, "I'm a pop artist so my medium is public opinion and the world is my canvas" and gives a speech about the significance of the moment for him.
