Just like Reebok's Classic Leather sneaker, Kendrick Lamar is timeless.
That's why the King Kunta rapper makes the perfect spokesperson to merge the worlds of music and sneaker culture with the power of spoken word!
In a new video paying homage to the authenticity of the iconic kicks, K-Dot tells the story of what the sneaker he grew up wearing means to him — a form of self expression that gives him the confidence to stay true to who he is.
Wow — who knew the Grammy-winner's artistic inspiration came from a pair of sneakers!?

We have a feeling gems like this are going to be popping up for a long time.
For instance, did you know that the 57-year-old musician once had an underground show with Kendrick Lamar at his Paisley Park estate two years before his death?!
Apparently, the two Grammy winners — who interestingly enough each have seven gramophones to their name — performed What's My Name for a crowd of superfans back in 2014, and the video finally found its way online this week!
They sound as AH-Mazing as you'd expect, but the real treat is just getting to see Prince like we've literally never seen him before.
Rest in peace, sweet Prince.

But this week, the 46-year-old actor and rapper was finally able to pull it off!
On Saturday night, Cube and the rest of the surviving members of the rap group — MC Ren, DJ Yella, AND Dre — took the stage for a VERY memorable performance!
After Ren, Yella, and Ice pumped the crowd up with Straight Outta Compton, Cube asked the crowd:
"Is there a doctor in the motherf*cking house?"
Of course this is when
Beyoncé did it again!
We've been wondering when Queen Bey would gift the world with her next release, and last night on HBO, we got our answer!!!
Lemonade dropped and pretty much took over Twitter yesterday evening, with Bey releasing 12 — yes, 12 — new songs alongside music videos from the upcoming album!
It's all available on Tidal now, which is a bit of a surprise that she
So it's no surprise the iconic actor made Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" list!
The Revenant star is featured on one of six special covers celebrating the list — along with fellow influentials Nicki Minaj, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra, Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, and International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde!
On Thursday, Time revealed the coveted list, which featured everyone from U.S. presidential candidates (Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders), Hollywood stars, (Melissa McCarthy, Idris Elba, and Creed director Ryan Coogler), to everyone in between!
A lot influentials weren't surprising — powerhouse names like
Someone's got a bone to pick with Kendrick Lamar!
The Grammy-winner has cranked out a lot of hits over the past few years, but one of his earlier tracks is getting the rapper into a bit of legal trouble!
According to TMZ, K.Dot is being sued for sampling a Bill Withers song in his 2009 track without permission.
The lawsuit was issued by Mattie Music Group, a music company that claims it owns the rights to the 1975 song Don't You Want To Stay.
The company alleges that Kendrick's song I Do This — featured on his self titled EP — is a complete replica of Withers' love song.
Claiming that the King Kunta performer's track "consists of nothing more than new rap and hip hop lyrics set to the existing music of Don't You Want To Stay," Mattie Music is suing for damages and wants the hitmaker to stop using the song.
Though we still have to see how this pans out in court, we're sure Lamar would be fine with scratching an old track from his repertoire.

Thursday night was a very emotional night for quite a few basketball and sports fans as it marked Kobe Bryant's very last basketball game.
The Black Mamba certainly went out in fashion as he capped off the end of his 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers by beating the Utah Jazz 101-96 and scoring 60 points himself in his final outing!
After the 37-year-old scored his final bucket of the night at the free line, the entire El Lay crowd was immediately on their feet. Not to mention, the famous athlete walked over and gave Shaq O'Neal a hug and, once the final buzzer went off, took center stage to give the crowd a fitting speech (below).
Kobe addressed how blessed he has been throughout his career and thanked everyone from his friends, family, and teammates… before dropping the mic with a "Mamba Out!" LOVES it!
Of course, with #24 being one of the greatest players to ever play the game, he had the world watching him. Not surprisingly, several A-lister took to Twitter to praise the now retired NBA star — including Reese Witherspoon, Kanye West, and even President Barack Obama.
