Born & Raised on the east-side of New Orleans, LA, artist Donald Allen III aka Don Flamingo has always viewed the world in his own way. Being resilient in any undertaking is a talent that few may know but has become a moniker and inspiration for the Show, now emerging as Don Flamingo. Coming from a city such as New Orleans, which is known for genres such as jazz, zydeco, blues, brass bands, and hip-hop forming a musical legacy as unique as the soup this treasure is known for. Don Flamingo boasts of a resume that includes being associated with acts such as T.I., Scarface, Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, BG, and Lil Wayne. Featured as a Tidal Discovery artist, also being named a BET Music Matters featured artist twice as well as opening the BET Awards Music Matters Showcase as a part of the New Orleans rap group, The Rap Pack. Don Flamingo is establishing himself as a rising southern rap star. His song's combination of street-savvy toughness and pop crossover appeal represents of the rapper himself. The two time NOLA Music Awards Lyrist of the Year is allowing his content and delivery to speak to listeners and encourage a scavenger hunt that may garner attention to hidden gems throughout his music.
Don Flamingo explains his mission in hip-hop by stating “every rap artist has a similar story; growing up with no father, mom was a single parent so you learn from the streets, but when I put my twist to it, I create a variation of that story and make it my own.” Even the steps that Don Flamingo has taken to get to this point create a variation furthering the point; there’s no business like Show business. From his introduction to rap in 1995 via a poem dedicated to the memory of his deceased father, it was always the reception of his projects that kept Don Flamingo going. This reception allowed a joy to become a hobby, a hobby to transform to a talent, and a talent into a business. Now the business has come full circle back to a joy and because the Show must go on, the emergence of Don Flamingo is a friendly reminder to #NevaSayDie.
