In our new conversation series ‘5 Minutes With…’, we chat style, culture, influences and of course, Docs, with creatives who are shaking up the scene. From musicians and artists to tattooists and change-makers, we get under the skin of the exciting characters wearing Dr. Martens.
Here, we’re talking to Nottingham-born rapper Hex, who will soon be taking to the stage as part of our eight days of music and talent at Dr. Martens Presents. You can catch him playing in our Dr. Martens store in Nottingham on 3rd November.
1. What’s your pre-gig ritual?
Not sure I actually have a pre-gig ritual at the moment, I would usually just speak with my team to make sure everything is all set for me to perform. Maybe in the future this will change to something exciting.
2. If you could play a gig with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
From the living I would pick Travis Scott. And from the deceased it would have to be Michael Jackson.
3. What’s the most rebellious thing you’ve ever done?
I’m rebellious in the music scene because I don’t want to fit in. I want to be different.
4. Favourite venue?
Royal Albert Hall.
5. Tell us about your favourite pair of Docs. What would your dream pair of Docs look like?
My favourite pair of Dr. Martens are the Combs Tech and my dream pair would be like a combination between the Techs and the self-lacing Air Mags, from Back to the Future. I like futuristic stuff.
