“I was a gifted artist since age five and won national competitions and went to art school,” said Kanye. “I’m actually getting an honorary doctorate on May 5th from the Art Institute of Chicago.”

West earned a scholarship to attend the American Academy of Art in Chicago. He later transferred to Chicago State University before quitting school to pursue his music career.

CORRECTION: Representatives from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago have confirmed Kanye West will be receiving an honorary degree from SAIC, not the Art Institute of Chicago like West mentioned in the interview. Also, the date of the graduation is scheduled for May 11, not May 5.
