“They got the Dropout keeping kids in the school”
Today is the day. Hometown hero, Kanye West, is back in the Chi today to receive his Honorary Doctorate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago during their graduation.
Kanye will be receiving the prestigious award alongside Eloise W. Martin, Douglas Druick, Rhona Hoffman, Janet Bryne Neiman Albert Oehlen.
You can livestream the ceremony right here. You won’t want to miss it.
Update: Now with a clip of Kanye’s acceptance speech.
Before receiving his honorary doctorate at SAIC later on today, Kanye lectured to students of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for a full hour. He touched on a number of subjects including his adidas deal, the fashion industry, violence in Chicago and much more. Check it out below via Complex.
Back in April, Keef took to Twitter to ask Lil Wayne to feature on his upcoming album, The Cozart. And by early May, Keef got his wish. Well, sort of. Last week, we brought you pictures of Keef, Jeremih and Yung Berg in the studio working on some music, and it appears the track in question is from Jeremih’s long-awaited album, Late Nights.
The song previewed here in the clip is Jeremih featuring Chief Keef and Lil Wayne, and from numerous YouTube and IG clips of it, it appears to be a C-Sick beat (I think I heard the infamous tag in their somewhere.) I’m also guessing it was produced by Yung Berg, since he can be seen in the video, and his production chops have been on fire recently.
Hit the jump for a quick preview, and keep an eye out for the official version to drop at any moment now.
“I’m gonna be the f**** best”
Someone unearthed this short and sweet Kanye clip from 2003, prior to the release of Ye’s debut, The College Dropout. In it, Kanye morphs into Yestradamus and looks into his crystal ball to predict the future. You may not have believed him then, but you surely do now. You couldn’t tell him nothin’ then, and still can’t at this point.
Listen to me now, believe me later on.
