Headed and founded by CEO Darris Robins. Darris Robins begin as aspiring musician and artist starting out at the age of 10 born in St.Louis MO. He attended Berklee College of Music In Boston MA but soon after dropped out.
Darris Robins produced & wrote his own music, & understood how to write & compose music at a very early age. He would stay up all night preparing compositions & instrumentals that he would share constantly with his friends & family.
After dropping out of college due to the ever growing student loan debt in May 2012, he amassed over $100k+ in student loan debt at the age of 19. That pushed him into learning the business of music. The massive debt shook his foundation to the core & found himself stressed out often with debt that equals a mortgage at only 19 years old.
He started marketing his music online to pay for necessities & was his only source of income. After amassing a solid following on his own, people started to ask how do you grow your fan base, can you help me? He began freelance marketing for his peers & being outsourced to business’s for a year & started a interview/vlog series for local artists around his local town.
Nov 21st 2013 he branded his company as Mic Check Global, a marketing agency that helps creatives, personalities & business’s grow their social media presence to connect with their targeted demographic, niche market online & establish a large following that convert into sales.
In 2017 Darris Robins created Mic Check Global Films which he began creating visual branding content that business’s can use to convey their messaging on social media to tell a story & present a new product or service.
In 2019 Mic Check global officially opened their first international office in Cebu Philippines to build business relationships with the people of Asia. Mic Check Global also had it’s first international show Jan 2019.
The new venture includes, hiring brand team ambassadors, sponsoring artist development programs and events, and encourage intercontinental communication and expansion with the ever growing entertainment scenes that are brewing all over the continent of Asia. Mic Check Global is the first American/Asian company to embark on this venture to help emerging artists grow into full time artists and entrepreneurs.
Darris and his partners in Cebu have sponsored students to attend private school. These students have ambition to a higher education but aren’t able to afford it due to poverty and lack of opportunities. The average class room size of some public schools are 40-70 kids per class. Darris’s goal is to sponsor over 100 students by 2020.
