Rapper, singer, and actor Kid Cudi must be in a state of happiness, as he was recently honoured by Instituto Marangoni Miami with an honorary master’s degree in fashion, as we learned from an Instagram post he shared, wearing a tailored cap and gown and accompanied by his mother.

The shared post consisted of two images and a video accompanied by a text that said: “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.”

For those who don’t know much about Scott Ramón Seguro Mescudi’s career, it’s worth mentioning that he is one of the most influential and visionary figures in music and fashion. He is the founder and creative director of his own brand, Members of the Rage, and we recently learned that he is creating another brand together with NIGO – current creative director of Kenzo, called WZRD CWBY.

Congratulations to Kid Cudi for such a well-deserved award!
