ELEVATED SCOTT FOUNDER OF INTENATIONAL-HIPHOP.COM
Scott E. McDowell hails originally from Baltimore, MD but has traveled a great deal around the country taking residence in different states such as Florida, North Carolina, New Mexico, and California. Currently living in New York City he is involved with many projects which he believes has helped him establish a name that sets him apart from others. Building a company from the ground up, Scott has worked tenaciously to create and seize every opportunity that has come his way, allowing him to prove his abilities and strong work ethics to clients, in return gaining a buzz in the industry putting him in a position of high demand.
His professional career began in advertising where he worked with some of the biggest media outlets in the world, including Examiner News paper group, CBS Sports radio, The Baltimore Guide and Creative Loafing in Tampa, FL. Breaking into the music industry as a top level executive is something that never crossed Scott's mind but while on set with CBS sports radio in South Florida working the Hot Import nights tour the brilliant idea of putting together after parties for the entire tour came to him. Realizing the potential profit that could come out of this epiphany and baring risk in mind, he courageously left his position at CBS to pursue a career as a booking agent/entertainment consultant where he has come to work with some of the biggest acts in the history of the music business. Amongst his roster are Colby Odonis and Ya Boy, two of AKONS artist’ signed to Konvict Muzik, as well as Dr. Dre's son and west coast prince Curtis Young, Dj Rocky Rock of Black Eye Peas, T-Lopez from Cash Money Records, Bonnie Pointer from Pointer Sisters and Suga Bang from Wu-Tang Clan.

Officially set to take off in early 2011, Scott plans to surround his launch around the release of his first international project; Global attack mix tape series with several release parties to promote the global movement being planned in Belgium, London, NYC and Los Angeles.
Scott always has his hands full with projects varying between marketing,sponsorships, booking and consulting. Some ventures he’s been working on consist of international compilation cd’s bringing together tracks by artist’ from all regions of the world including Africa, Germany, Spain, France, London and of course the U.S. The first several volumes of this global mix tape series are set for release in early 2011 through Island Def Jam Digital. He has also been hired as the music and marketing supervisor for the Xbox Live video game College Lacrosse, collaborating with XBOX as well as Crosse studios to produce and promote this series of games. Scott has dipped into the artist management side of things as well, currently planning the release of his artist Suga Bang Bangs (formerly of the Wu Tang Clan)new single and 3 song ep featuring Raekwon, Red Café, Sheek Loch, Styles P and Busta Rhymes.
In addition to his future endeavors is a sports division within his company in which Scott has confirmed his first client to be NFL player Presscott Burgess of the Baltimore Ravens. Scott plans to make a global impact with everything he is affiliated with. "I have a big vision for my empire and look up to moguls like Richard Bronson who has built a galactic empire.” Focusing mainly on brand development through sponsorship and product placement as well as the promotion and growth of the Global attack mix tape, Scott and Elevated Solutions will continue gaining notoriety and an international presence. Scott stays focused with an elevated state of mind as he prepares and looks forward to what the future will bring.
