Kid Cudi is officially a scholar. This past week, Scott Mescudi received an honorary Master’s degree in fashion from the Instituto Marangoni Miami. The artist celebrated the major feat online in an Instagram post that featured an image of himself in a custom-made cap and gown and his mother.

Reflecting on the “prestigious honor,” Cudi wrote in the post, “Today was a really special day. Man, words cant really express how I felt/feel now in this moment. Im happy, I feel complete, accomplished, validated, all the things that bring immense joy. My mom sharing this moment w me was everything. She got emotional, and it was such a special memory we’ll have together forever.” He continued to add, ” 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 id 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 w open arms and blessing me w this prestigious honor.”

Cudi’s degree comes after two season of his own brand, Members of the Rage. Recently, he also announced that he is creating another brand with NIGO called WZRD CWBY. In the school’s own Instagram page, it congratulated Cudi stating, “This honorary degree from Istituto Marangoni Miami recognizes Scott’s (@kidcudi) accomplishments and vision in shaping the scene of modern fashion and luxury with Members of the Rage (@membersoftherage). Recognizing the inspiration he is to young creatives. Is an honor for us to present this to the world of fashion worldwide and also a statement in the continuous pursuit of education in fashion and design, it is the future and the present of creativity.” The school promises to donate the proceeds from the pop-up to their scholarship fund.
