How Producer Scott Storch Made Millions Of Dollars And Squandered His Fortune (Documentary)

Nothing like a morning jaunt, and a joint, with the dogs. Ahhhh, the life of Scott Storch… now. It hasn’t always been sunshine and roses for the super-producer. Yep, this half-hour Vevo documentary covers a lot of that life. And what a life it has been thus far!

There are few music careers like that of Scott Storch. The esteemed producer-songwriter made his initial mark in Philly as a key member of The Roots. A great start, but just the beginning of a wild ride to the top. Storch’s way with crafting hooks and shaping melodies, as well as his knack of being in the right place at the right time, brought him to Cali, where the inspired keyboardist began shaping the sound of pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B, working with an array of artists that stretch from Dr. Dre and Beyoncé to 50 Cent to Christina Aguilera. The hits rolled in, the money stacked up, and creativity exploded. A big chunk of the 2000’s best music has Storch’s name on it. Then, through a string of drug troubles and monetary woes, he dropped out of sight for a decade. It was the music’s loss. Now he’s back in action, and our intimate profile ‘Still Storch’ paints a portrait of a man who’s seen it all and is still cranking out great tracks. These days his studio hosts artists such as French Montana, Chris Brown, A$AP Ferg as well as talented newcomers like Kyle and Thutmose. A victory come-back. For Hip-Hop fans, ‘Still, Storch’ is a must-see mini-doc, an extended look at talent, addiction, and an unyielding passion for artistry.
