Pitbull - Pitbull Receives Honorary Degree

Rapper Pitbull has been honoured with a degree from Doral College.

The Timber hitmaker was feted in Miami, Florida on Tuesday (17Jun14).

During his commencement speech, he said, "I remember being kicked out of a public school because I didn't have the right address. That's why I want better schools for the kids who live where I grew up.

"That's why Doral Academy was founded, and that's why I helped create Slam (Sports Leadership and Management Academy) in the neighborhood where I grew up... a school that offers a choice for students, like me, students who need someone to inspire them, someone to believe in them."

He later added on Twitter.com, "for those that didn't believe..." accompanied with a picture of himself holding his degree in a college graduation cap and gown - and flipping his middle finger at the camera.

Doral College is a non-accredited institution.
