Kanye West promised his mama he'd go back to school and the college dropout received his honorary doctorate from the Art Institute of Chicago during today's (May 11) commencement ceremony. Kanye gave an hour long lecture at SAIC during last night's pre-commencement ceremony at SAIC (the full audio can be heard here via Complex) which included a Q+A portion with the students. Unlike his appearance at London's Oxford University in March where cell phones were banned, footage was captured and shared across social media. Check out some clips from @teamkanyedaily and @prgarc:
