“Today was a really special day,” the 39-year-old wrote.

“Man, words cant 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. 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.”

“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.

Cudi’s clothing line, Members of the Rage, will donate a portion of sales from its pop-up store to the school’s scholarship fund. As for the rapper, this academic accomplishment is an inspiration to his fans, and he has promised his new alma mater that he will be back “very very soon.”
