Kendrick Lamar was nabbed by Reebok to help reintroduce its acclaimed Ventilator franchise, and also delivered several must-have collabs with the brand. But now, the rap superstar has a new label backing him: Nike.
Lamar announced via Twitter today that he is now “Team Nike.”
The Compton, Calif.-based artist lent his design influence to several iconic Reebok sneakers before teaming up with Nike, including the Ventilator, the Classic Leather and the Club C. Lamar often used a message of unity among gangs in his hometown in his collaborations with Reebok, such as his debut Ventilator shoe and two reimagined iterations of the Classic Leather silhouette, including his premium Red and Blue drop and a clean beige colorway.
