Dr. Dre and Scott Storch Reunite
As far as super producers go, Dr. Dre and Scott Storch represent two different paths of how to handle stardom, but at one point in time, their talents were united to produce some of Dre's most memorable records. Storch is credited with composing the key loop on "Still D.R.E." and had his hand in additional 2001 cuts such as “Big Ego’s.” They then went on to collaborate on Eve and Gwen Stefani's hit "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" but Storch's drug use led to a falling out between the two.
In an interview from February of this year, Storch said that it was likely his drug problem that led to their split, saying, "I have a very good feeling about me and Dre in the future, we’ll get back and do some more stuff together. I’m out in California now, it only makes sense. I burnt a lot of bridges with my drug use and pissed a lot of people off."
Well, that feeling can be confirmed as spot on, with the two appearing in a n Instagram photo posted late Wednesday evening (June 29). "It’s a big day in hip hop earlier today" Steve Lobel captioned the snapshot. "Reunited and it feels so good #drdre X #scottstorch what a great meeting! Stay tuned! history repeats itself."
What the two are plotting can only be speculated now, but Storch has commented on the 2001 sessions in the past, saying, "At the time, I saw Dr. Dre desperately needed something. He needed a fuel injection, and Dre utilized me as the nitrous oxide. He threw me into the mix, and I sort of tapped on a new flavor with my whole piano sound and the strings and orchestration. So I'd be on the keyboards, and Mike [Elizondo] was on the bass guitar, and Dre was on the drum machine."
