Chance the Rapper is now a doctor! The emcee received an honorary doctorate from Dillard University this past weekend.
The Rapper also gave a commencement speech for the 2018 graduating class.
In his commencement speech, Chance shared his thoughts on achieving goals and dreams. He said: “Walk right up to the edge of what your heroes have accomplished and think to yourself, ‘What’s beyond this?” He added: “That is the moment you will become as great as your greatest inspiration. And that’s also when you cannot stop. Looking up to your heroes is amazing but it’s not good enough. The difference between goodness and greatness is going beyond. You have to push forward and surpass their greatness in order to pay homage to their struggle.”
