If you were a hip-hop fan during the late 90s then you remember the name, Scott Storch. You the white kid who produced some of hip-hop's biggest smash hits such Dr. Dre's ''Still Dre'' to Beyonce's ''Me, Myself And I''. Scott Storch's hand were all over those songs and his talents behind the boards made him a living legend with a ton of money to burn.
Now in Vevo's new documentary ''Still Storch'', we get the opportunity to learn more about the mega-producer and how things fell into place, from his collaborations with Questlove as well as his short stay as a member of The Roots. And finally how he met Dre and as they say the rest is history.
The 20-minute documentary shows Scott Storch's rise to the top, but also his struggles such as his drug addictions, which hurt him financially even during his time at the top. These were the issues that led to him falling out of the public eye for many years.
Scott explains how managed to screw it up, “I dropped the ball,” he says after lowkey boasting that his wealth was “close to $100 million.”
Scott Storch was just a nerdy guy who basically hit the musical lottery and it was all too much for him, “I was suddenly—after being this nerdy guy in the studio my whole life, I was introduced to cocaine and party life, and 135-foot yachts in your backyard. It’s overwhelming; you lose sight of reality.”
Storch lived a life of extreme excesses and knew no limits when it came to partying and spending, “After snorting a couple of lines of cocaine, it seemed like a good idea to have a tractor-trailer show up with four to five cars, new ones, every couple weeks,” he asserts at one point in the doc. After chopping it up about his opulent spending on chartered flights, cars, and drugs, the artist admits, “I was playing a role, maybe, and trying to be the king, and live a billionaire’s life as a millionaire, and it’s dangerous stuff.”
