Today we’d like to introduce you to Malik Belvin.
Hi Malik, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I was in my sophomore year of college and then pandemic started. When they released us, I worked a warehouse job and then used my tax return plus stimulus to invest into marketing spent $5k my first month of my music career and then I had a failing manager who did not care about my budget of spending so I educated myself to also become a management and social media marketing brand. That’s when mkornok marketing and management came into my career and how I became so successful was by helping as many upcoming artists, models and producers, etc. Managing them and marketing their social media accounts no matter what budget they could spend some even spent $15 one time for six months and I still helped everyday all day and night and I built my fan base off marketing methods I used and made. So I ended up getting known by a lot of major brands and teams and names because of how much I grown within my first 11 months all independent.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road at all. To get where I’m at I had to believe in myself and my career over anything over a 9/5 and others doubting what I do. A lot of family and relationships got broken because they said I was less of a man and not focused on priorities but what they did not realize was my career and working hard to become successful was my priority also fought depression living alone and not getting any love or help with anything. I was living off my phone in the beginning of my career I had no tv or anything just a king bed one bedroom apartment and my phone and two weeks worth of clothes. I went hungry some weeks and depressed for months that was my biggest struggle.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am an independent rapper and I also do independent social media marketing and management for all artists and creators and influencers/ brands and businesses. I am mostly proud of me being so different from other brands I care about people personally and what they can afford no matter how low it is and also I’m proud of myself because I have really helped a lot of people build their careers and mindsets and confidence and not give up and also helped them keep their head up and know there is someone who can provide knowledge and care with business instead of ignoring them for not being financially stable or the best of the best.
Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
I was funny and I was a lonely person and different always stayed to myself but I was a funny person and I was known by everybody because of being a top athlete and just a real cool personality. But definitely was alone for the most part.
