The duo of Reebok Classic and Finish Line partner to bring fans another exclusive look into the lives, styles, and creative processes of some of the world’s top musical artists through its new video series entitled “Studio Sessions.”

In this second episode of Studio Sessions, Kendrick Lamar sits down with Finish Line reporter, Jacques Slade, in the same studio where he created his latest album, “To Pimp a Butterfly.” The two rappers, with a mutual love for classic sneakers, discuss where Kendrick the person—not the rapper—draws his inspiration from. Lamar’s answer?


Kendrick says that meeting people and taking a nugget of wisdom from each interaction is what keeps him inspired. Musically, Kendrick says he’s most inspired by his father and his love of music, which introduced him to the artists from which he’d learn: mostly oldies and gangsta rap.

Stay tuned for future episodes of Studio Sessions with Kendrick Lamar, coming soon.
