Kendrick Lamar x Reebok= Ventilars OG Reebok Classics

I'm sure everyone thought-If Kendrick ever dropped a shoe it would be with Nike. I only say that because of the verse he dropped in his Control verse: Peep it below

And I ain’t rocking no more designer shit. White T’s and Nike Cortez, this is red corvettes anonymous . I’m usually homeboys with the same n*ggas-I’m rhymin’ with. But this is hip hop and them n*ggas should know what time it is.
— Kendrick Lamar Verse- Control by Big Sean

Kendrick joins the Reebok family dropping the Ventilators OG in hopes of brings PEACE  and UNITY between the Blood and Crips. The pair I've seen are an off white color with RED sewn into the heel of the left shoe and Blue in the right. The words "Kendrick Lamar" and "TDE" are inscribed in the sole and "Neutral on the tongue of the shoe.

Pretty creative, Right? 

Kendrick says he grew up wearing Teebos and Rees. What is that you ask?

It's a white tee Jabo jeans and white Reebok classics.

His style is simple yet edgy.

Lamar also adds: " Reebok has always been in the community helping the youth. He wanted to be apart of it and make it better. Kids listen to my music are looking for inspiration. It's important that I continue that message.

The two joined together and shot a short film in Kendrick's hometown of Compton. It was directed by: Anthony Mandler. They filmed in areas they Kendrick hold near and dear to his heart.

I'm a big fan of Kendrick Lamar. I love how he educates the youth in his music. Pushes the new generation to push to be heard and do better. 

 

The shoes are in select stores now  and on Reebok.com and selling from $123- $143. Various colors are available.

Will you cop a pair?
