According the dictionary a trademark is a name, symbol, or other device identifying a product, officially registered and legally restricted to the use of the owner or manufacturer. It is a distinctive characteristic by which a person or thing comes to be known. It is also the root-word from which Texas rapper Trai'D (pronounced Tray D), one of the South's hottest MCs choose to base his stage moniker Traidmark on.
"Trai'D is short for Traidmark. I chose that as my name because a "trademark" is the symbol that a company or organization uses to represent them and their product. In my case where ever I'm at I'm representin' my people, my City, my label, everything I stand for to the fullest, ya dig."
