Kendrick Lamar has revealed his newly designed signature model sneakers for Reebok. The TDE rapper developed the special Ventilator model kicks, which pay tribute to his hometown of the Compton, California.

The shoes are mostly off-white but have both red and blue script to signify unity between the long battling Crips and Bloods gangs in the area. The left show simply has the word "Blue" across the back heel while the right show dons the word "Red," each are in the corresponding color.

Kendrick also made recent headlines when he responded to criticism of his "Alright" performance at the BET Awards.

"How can you take a song that's about hope and turn it into hatred?" he said before saying, "The message, the overall message, is we gonna be all right. It's not the message, we gonna kill people."
