Scott Storch Producer Profile

by Elliot Waite on October 11, 2006

Scott Spencer Storch (born December 16 or December 15, 1973 in Brooklyn, New York), is an American Jewish entertainment mogul, hip-hop record producer, arranger and keyboardist. He plays the piano, clavinet, violin, bagpipes and he is also an avid horse back rider.

After moving to Cherry Hill, New Jersey where he became the keyboard player for the Philadelphia hip-hop band The Roots, he played keyboards for other Philly artists including Schoolly D and G. Love.

Storch began experimenting with his own productions by making beats for The Roots. He then left the band and learned more about the art of making beats from Dr. Dre and Timbaland. Storch is now one of the most in-demand hip-hop producers today, working on beats for a wide variety of artists. Unlike many of his contemporaries (Kanye West, Pharrell), Storch rarely uses samples in his beats, preferring to create his own music.

In his private life, he has been romantically linked with rapper Lil’ Kim and Paris Hilton. Despite his flashy appearance wearing enormous amounts of diamond jewelry and driving very expensive automobiles, he prefers a modicum of privacy, and is relatively shy compared to fellow hip-hop producers Pharrell Williams or Kanye West, both of whom have become musical stars themselves after becoming successful producers. Scott has a son named Steve who lives with him in Miami. In a recent interview with Stuff Magazine, Storch says he enjoys buying and wearing jewelry that represents power. In mid-2006, Rolling Stone magazine reported Storch’s fortune to be worth somewhere near $70 million dollars. On April 16, 2006, Scott and his sometime girlfriend of four years, Dae Daniel Esquire, welcomed his second son, Jalen Storch.

Storch’s own production company is called Tuff Jew Productions. Storch also has his own record label, called Storchaveli, which is distributed under Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment.

For a short while in 2005, Storch worked with fellow mega-producer Lil Jon to produce hits for Lil Flip, Angel Doze and Tony Sunshine among others. However, the relationship soon turned sour and ended with Lil Jon criticizing Storch for being a “biter.” Storch responded “(Lil Jon) get on my level, I’m a musician, not a biter”.

Storch is the subject of Christina Aguilera’s song “F.U.S.S.” (F*** U , Forget U, or For U Scott Storch) from her 2006 album, Back to Basics. Storch responded to this during an interview with In Touch Weekly magazine, during which he criticised Aguilera’s album, saying it was “full of fillers, over singing and lame Vegas-like cabaret music.”

Storch made his first appearance in DJ Khaled’s Holla At Me Baby music video. His second appearance was at the end of the new music video by Fat Joe entitled Make It Rain.
