There’s no doubt Kendrick Lamar is an amazing rapper.

His debut album good kid, M.A.A.D. city has gone gold and is well on its way to platinum status. While the Compton emcee is known for his lyrical content, in a recent interview with HighSnobiety, Kendrick expressed a few of his thoughts on style – a different subject for him.

Check out some excerpts from Kendrick’s interview below.

You were born and raised in Compton. What sums up “Compton Style” for you?

Sun, culture, neighborhoods – but most of all: aggressiveness.

If Compton were a sneaker, which one would it be?

Nike Cortez Originals – I got a whole bunch of those.

If your rap style were a car, which one would it be?

It would be an older model car. It would probably be a Regal, an 87 Regal, because it’s hard, it has edge, but at the same time it’s a great look, kinda smooth if you ride it the right way.

Name 3 style essentials that should never miss in your luggage when you’re on tour.

A pair of Air Jordan XI’s, some nice Polo draws to keep me comfortable and a TDE hoody, just because Top Dawg will probably be mad, if I don’t have that with me (laughs).
