Yeezy, who admitted he was feeling "nervous," took to the podium to make a short speech, which he began by saying;  "I am a pop artist, so my medium is public opinion, and the world is my canvas." 

"When I was giving a lecture at Oxford, I brought up this school because when I went on that mission to create in other spaces, apparel, film, performance, it would have been easier if I could have said that I had a degree at the Art Institute of Chicago," 'Ye told the audience.
