Scott Storch, Seriously, WTF?

Real talk, Scott Storch was on fire a couple years ago. There was “Lean Back,” and “Candy Shop,” “Just A Lil Bit,” and even just a year or two ago he had “Make It Rain” literally ruling the clubs. What the fuck happened?

Now the guy is auctioning his yacht on Ebay, getting Bentleys he bought for irrelevant rappers like Lil Kim repossessed, he owes mad money in child support, and now he’s got a warrant out for his arrest. Ridiculous.

This is what happens when producers become divas. I’ve heard horror stories about Scotty from some friends of mine in music publishing. But that’s neither here nor there. Right now, with the industry being what it is, all the bells and whistles don’t matter. All that diva shit is out the window. It’s grind time for real. What matters is your work ethic, your business being right, and delivering incredibly hot records. Nothing else.

There’s a rapper out of Detroit who goes by the name Trick Trick. You might have heard of him, he sorta has a reputation for beating the shit out of so-called gangster rappers who come through the D frontin. Anyway, he’s got a song out now called “Let’s Work,” and the hook says “If You Don’t Work, You Don’t Eat.” How fucking true is that statement?!?!!?

Now I’m not saying Scott ain’t working. Actually I don’t know what the hell he does all day, and I’m sure he’s a good guy and all. But seriously, in this game you’ve gotta maintain an underdog mentality at all times if you want to win. As soon as you start believing your own hype, you’re on the way out. It’s not just like that with rap music, it’s like that with life, period. You can’t rest on your past achievements, you’ve got to constantly redefine yourself. You’re only as hot as your last hit.

Of course the internet being what it is, and corny mothafuckas in rap media world over-hyping any piece of shit news they can get, this thing with a warrant being out for his Scott’s arrest has been blown out of proportion something ridiculous. Still and all, it’s sad that it’s come to this. There was a time where all you could think of was hot records that he’d done. Now it’s like you can think of him for all the wrong reasons.

Plus hip-hop’s…ahem… other white guy, JR Rotem has like 3 singles on the radio right now. And JR came from playing keys for Dre too. So it looks like the underdog’s definitely on top now.

    Scott Storch is a douche bag. I’m not hating…I’m just happy that reality has bitch-slapped him in the face.

    • malone

      LOL. Thats the definition of hating.

    Hey champ, seriously did Scott Storch promise you a blxw jxb and a few rails of the ol’ white pony if you dragged your pale bacon covered slab of a body on here and start typing away at some type of rebuttal to clean up his quote un quote reputation. Did he promise to “put you on”, and let you run what ever is left of his “generic white rap empire”.

    Please do the world a favor, and when i say world, i mean the whole world from Southern California to Southern Chile, from East Brooklyn to Eastern Europe, every city, providence and district and kill yourself.

    Please, whether its shotgun or crossbow, bleach jamba juice or anti freeze vanilla bean malt. Hell, you could fill your cargo pants with little bite size snickers and twizzlers (product placement) and fling your Jabba the Hud style physique from the 13th floor of a Victorian stlye manor with a noose around your neck yelling “I did it all for you Scotty, I did all for you” finally ending with the P2 Bronx Elementry 4th grade class coming in with props from the T.I “Hurt” video (bats, chains, Ak 47s with night vision scopes etc.) and being catalyst for you “pinatta” like demise.

    Kill yourself

    ^^^ The realest shit you ever spoke my nigga. That statement alone just might make this your best post yet.

    And word up on Trick Trick. I aint heard much of his stuff expect “Welcome To Detroit City” and a couple other joints, but dude is hard body (||) and keeps it gully.

    Trick Trick = True Underdog

    I bet this is another form of marketing. Give it a few weeks and “BOOM” there’s gonna be some record by (insert artist here)produced by ……you guessed it. “They build you up to break you down. If you white, hell they build you up to break you down to build you up again. I aint racist though. wink

    Trick Trick is as street as it gets. Don’t come thru waterworld on no bullshit…517 por vida!

    Scotty lost when he tried to talk that shit about timbo. Timbo doesn’t even have to show up and he makes hotter records than storch. He gets points for the grammy, but ill put mr. Mosley against riley, and a lot of other producers. He is reshaping pop music right now

    Timbo > Scott Storch

    Don’t sleep on the lakeshow…lakers in 7!

    To all whom this may concern, Im not going to state my offiliation with Scott however i will straiten out his financial ruine. He like alot of people in the music industrie was f@*%ed by some bad dudes. He got tight with some mobsters in The southern portion of the us. These guys inturn took him to the cleaners. He was over paying for everything from his chlothes to his weed. He is a musical genius however he was 2 high to know what was going on. All of his financial problems are due to one thing, The people who did it to him. Im not saying he had a part in it however he really didnt deserve the shit he fell into.
