Hip-hop producer Scott Storch was on top of the world in the early 2000’s. As one of the most sought after producers, who worked under the wing of the legendary Dr. Dre, he produced smash hits for artists across all genres like Beyoncé, Nas, The Game, Eve, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Lil Wayne and more.


Scott Storch was even award ASCAP’s Songwriter of the Year award in 2006 and had amassed a nice fortune of more than $70 million.  Not bad for a high school dropout.sstorchkeyboard

Scott Storch wild ride was as quick as his cocaine high and now he is down to $100 in cash.

Storch filed for bankruptcy claiming that all he has is a grand total of $3600 in assets, $500 in clothing and a $3,000 watch.  In bankruptcy documents obtained by TMZ, Storch claims he made $10,000 last year.

Most shocking, is his music companies are now worth nothing as his drug habit drained his inspiration to create the hits that provided his wealth.  His habit was so bad that Storch left Janet Jackson at the studio waiting for him for five hours !!

In August 2006, at the height of his career, Storch decided to “take a year off” and vacationed in Hollywood, CA.  He had developed a cocaine habit in 2005 and began sstorchcarspartying heavy with the “Hollywood” class at his $10 million mansion, private jet, 117-foot yacht and a fleet of luxury cars.

Scott Storch was partying with all of the Hollywood A-listers including Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan.  I can only imagine how it was going down !!

Storch had literally had “blown” through $30 million in less than six months.

In 2008, Storch’s real financial troubles began after falling behind on his child support payments and property taxes, two institutions that have taken down many men living high on the hog to those living hand to mouth.

A wise man once told me, “It is not how much you make, its how much you can keep.”

Living a fast lifestyle, especially with drugs involved, one is likely not to keep much.
