Kid Cudi celebrated a huge achievement over the weekend.
On his Instagram, he revealed that he received an honorary master’s degree in fashion design from Istituto Marangoni Miami. He also expressed his joy and excitement and said that this achievement was for him and his mother.
“Today was a really special day. Man, words can't really express how I felt/feel now in this moment. I'm happy, I feel complete, accomplished, validated, all the things that bring immense joy. My mom sharing this moment with me was everything. She got emotional, and it was such a special memory we’ll have together forever,” he wrote.
He went on to share, “I never walked across any stage. I got my GED in high school and only did a year of college. My mom finally got to see me achieve what I thought I'd never do. And it was beautiful. Thank you to @istitutomarangoni_miami, the whole staff/faculty, and ESPECIALLY the STUDENTS (THE FUTURE!!) for welcoming me and my family and friends with open arms and blessing me with this prestigious honor.”
The “Day ‘n’ Nite rapper was recognized by Istituto Marangoni Miami for his contribution and impact on the fashion world, especially through his brand Members of the Rage. Proceeds from his pop-up outlet will be donated to its scholarship fund, reports say.
Congratulations to Kid Cudi.
