“For a long time, I’ve been wanting to put out this particular type of music. I’m not putting it into any particular category. I just want to do my thing. Just do me, be me and collaborate with whoever I want to collaborate with. That’s what Mingo Music is and I had to create the Flamingo Barnes persona to get that out of myself,” says Trademark Da Skydiver.

In the summer of 2012, Trademark Da Skydiver, also known as “Trade” for short, did exactly that. He created the persona, Flamingo Barnes, to truly find his own independent voice as a recording artist and released his most popular project to date, Flamingo Barnes. “As an original member of Jet Life, I spent the early part of my career making music and doing everything I could to help build, and grow the Jet Life brand. Now that it’s successful, it’s given all of us a chance to branch out and explore other things.”

This is not the first time that Trademark has developed an alternate persona. In 2009 and 2010, Trademark released three extremely well received mixtapes under the guise, Super Villain. “Really, I have three bodies of work at this point; my work as Da Skydiver with Jet Life, Super Villain and most recently my work as Flamingo Barnes. I can truly say that Flamingo Barnes is me. It’s Alex Washington, you know? It’s really who I am.”

Trademark is preparing for the November 19th release of his highly-anticipated album, Flamingo Barnes 2: Mingo Royale. The album will be released via Trademark’s partnership with iHipHop Distribution, and Trade is currently planning to tour immediately thereafter. The video for the first single, “Rite Nah,” featuring Dizzy Wright will premier next week.

Trade is also preparing to launch his own imprint to give other artists a chance to shine and recently signed his first artist named Blizz. Blizz’s first commercial single, “Cheechn,” which appeared on the A3C Volume 2 compilation in 2012, struck a chord with stoners around the world, surging to over half a million views on YouTube within the first three months of its release.
