Early life

Scott Storch was born in Nova Scotia, Canada,[1] the son of a court reporter and a singer, both of Jewish heritage. He eventually moved to Cherry Hill, New Jersey and Coral Springs, Florida with his family. He attended middle school and high school in Davie, Florida. He made his first big step in his professional music career in 1991 when he became one of the first members of the hip hop group The Roots as a keyboard player. Storch's first big commercial hit was when he collaborated with Dr. Dre and helped produce the riffs for the song "Still D.R.E.".


In 2006, Rolling Stone estimated that Storch had earned over $70 million in his career.[3] According to a 2007 Forbes article, "Hip Hop Cash Kings," Storch was one of the highest-paid people in the music industry in 2007, having earned $17 million in that year. His fee per track was around $85,000, exclusive of publishing royalties. In July 2008, it was reported that Storch was unable to pay over $500,000 in late property taxes, and a warrant was issued for his arrest for failure to appear at his child-support hearing. According to his attorney, there had been "mismanagement" of Storch's finances.[4]
