Scott Storch production discography
Storch began his professional music career in 1991, when he became one
of the first members of the hip hop group
The Roots as a keyboard
player. Storch's first two commercial hits were from
the production on the track You Got Me by
The Roots ft. Erykah Badu
and Eve and his collaboration with
Dr. Dre for the song "Still D.R.E."
including the characteristic piano. Storch's most
successful solo production hit was "Lean Back", a 2004 single by Fat
Joe. He was one of the top producers in the business,
having worked on hits by 50 Cent, The Game, T.I., Chris Brown,
Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Dr. Dre, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Pink, Lil' Kim
and many others." Storch was also awarded ASCAP's Songwriter of the
Year award in 2006.
He produces hip hop music through his label, Storch Music Company. He
also has his own music production company called Tuff Jew Productions
LLC[better source needed] which is published by Reservoir
Since filing for bankruptcy in 2015, he decided to focus on music and
lay off drugs. He has worked since then with DJ Khaled, The Game,
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and more.
By 2006, Storch had more than $70 million but also picked up a cocaine
addiction the prior year. In August 2006, he "took a month off"
and vacationed in Hollywood, California. Friend and manager Derek
Jackson said, "It was just a wonderful year, but I think it was
defined by the magic month of August. He ran into the Hollywood class
– and when he went to Hollywood, all things changed." He withdrew
from producing and focused on partying with friends at his $10 million
mansion in Palm Island, Florida. He also purchased a private jet, a
117-foot yacht, and nearly 20 luxury cars, about half of which he
estimated he purchased while high on cocaine. Storch squandered
$30 million in less than six months, and was in dire financial straits
by January 2007.
In 2008, Storch hit legal trouble after reportedly falling behind on
both his child-support payments and his property taxes. In early
2009, he was arrested for grand theft auto for allegedly failing to
Bentley he had leased three years prior. In April 2009,
Storch checked into an intensive inpatient rehab program in Hollywood,
Florida, and filed for bankruptcy that May. In February 2012,
Storch was arrested in
Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas, Nevada for possession of cocaine and
was released on bail. On June 24, 2015, Storch officially filed
