On Friday night, Kanye West addressed graduating students at prestigious fashion school Los Angeles Trade Technical College, and delivered the address like only he can.

His most memorable line? “When you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most.”

Before taking to the podium to address the crowd, West watched the students’ final runway show. Although West did court-ordered community service at the school in relation to his paparazzi assault case, school officials say speaking at the event was not mandatory – West wanted to show up to support the students.

"It's a tough world out there," he continued. "You're going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees, and usually when you're the absolute best, you get hated on the most."

We hear you, Kanye!
