Rapper Pitbull has been given an honorary degree by Doral College in Miami for his services to education.

Pitbull posted the news about his new qualification alongside the picture seen above and the message "for those that didn't believe #dale"

Giving a speech after accepting his degree, Pitbull 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."

He went on to say "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."

Pitbull, real name Armando Christian Pérez, is reportedly the first ever recipient of an honorary degree from Doral College.

Meanwhile, Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez song 'We Are One (Ole Ola)' is the official anthem for this year's World Cup in Brazil. The song also features Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte. with all three artists performing the song at the opening ceremony of the football tournament at the Arena de Sao Paulo on 12 June, 2014.
