Kid Cudi earned an honorary Master’s Degree in fashion from Istituto Marangoni Miami and celebrated the academic achievement in a post on Instagram, on Friday. Captioning a photo of himself in a full cap and gown alongside his mother, Cudi reflected on the “prestigious honor.”

“Today was a really special day,” Cudi began in the post. “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: “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.” Check out the full post on Instagram below.
