Saturday morning (May 11), Chance the Rapper gave the commencement speech at Dillard University’s graduation ceremony in New Orleans.

In the speech, the musician discussed persevering in the face of adversity and cited Beyoncé as an inspiration both he and the audience can look to. “You have to push forward and surpass their greatness in order to pay homage to their struggle,” he said, noting the importance of grounding one’s work in historical links to the past.

Chance also received an honorary doctorate from the university. He shared a video of himself getting ready on Instagram, saying, “Today is my graduation day.”
