Kendrick Lamar Promotes Peace Between Bloods and Crips with New Sneaker
Kendrick Lamar continues to use his pop culture position to promote social change. The beloved rapper recently teamed up with Reebok for a new set of sneakers, and he's used them to send a message of peace over gang violence in his hometown of Compton.

As Complex reports, the sneakers prominently feature the colour blue on the left side and red on the left — a reference to the colours of rival gangs the Crips and the Bloods.

Adding to the visual message, each shoe features the word "neutral" on its inside tongue.

Check out Kendrick Lamar's new Reebok sneakers below. The shoes will be available on July 18.
