Kanye West imparted some of his wisdom(?) to graduating fashion students at Los Angeles Trade Technical College on Friday night — the same school where he completed his community service for attacking that photographer at LAX.

‘Ye sat front row the Gold Thimble Fashion Show and went backstage to give the students some encouragement before taking the stage in front of everyone.

“It’s a tough world out there. You gotta prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hatin’ employees, and usually, when you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most,” said Kanye.

He continued, “Even for me as a successful musician, in order to make the transition, it was really all but impossible. People always try to box you in to what they know you best for. I feel extremely honored to see new talent fighting or their voice.”

Check out a few clips from Kanye’s appearance below.
