Kendrick Lamar has completed an “bucket list” moment, and all thanks to the renowned artist Martine Rose.

K. Dot worked closely with Rose in the design of his new line of clothes including a smooth leather vest by the “Oklama” moniker made to represent the jacket worn by Eazy-E’s late ex-wife.

The other merchandise is leather pants as well as an hoodie in black with a scribbled Martine Rose’s distinctive signature.

“Bucketlist to work with martine rose she camera shy but gangsta say hello to my young,” Kendrick wrote on Instagram.

Kendrick isn’t the first top-of-the-line rapper Martine Rose has collaborated with. The designer also was able to have Drake perform in Martine Rose’s”What We Do All Day virtual fashion show in winter. Drizzy has been seen in a pair of cozy sweatshirts and an oversized grey long-sleeve shirt from the latest collection of Rose’s menswear.

The new clothes are due to be released just days after Kendrick Lamar ad hoc celebrated the birthday of his landmark album “good Kid,” m.A.A.d city in the month of March. In addition to the album making Billboard history by spending an entire decade on the Billboard 200 chart, the album was also named as the “Greatest Concept Album of All Time” by Rolling Stone, surpassing Green Day’s American Idiot and Raekwon and Ghostface Killah’s Built 4 Cuban Linx.

“Lamar comes of age in Compton, encountering the city’s many pleasures as well its ever-present threat of gang conflict and police violence,” RS revealed about the album. “The cover promises a short film by Kendrick Lamar, and the rapper delivers with a coming-of-age opus, the cinematic scope of which has been rightfully compared to Scorsese and Tarantino.”

As for Kung Fu Kenny’s most recent effort Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers, the Compton-bred rapper described the album being “the reward for humanity” in a lengthy interview.

“I’ve had rewards for my other albums in different ways, whether it was accolades, whether it was the Pulitzer, whether it was the Grammys,” Kendrick declared. “This one is the reward for humanity for me.”

He said: “That’s the beauty; it’s the most satisfying feeling I’ve ever had. It’s similar to when I’m talking to my friends who were never in a position to speak and communicate. They only were able to communicate through violence.

“And for them to call up they moms, call they pops and say, ‘You hurt me, and this pushed me to go stay with my grandma, which my grandma pushed me to stay with my homies, which the homies pushed me to …’ For them to be able to express that and have that communication is rewarding for me.”
