Scott Storch got his first taste of the professional music life as a keyboardist and one of the earlier members of The Roots. He later made his way to the mainstream as a co-producer on Dr. Dre's 1999 smash "Still D.R.E.," then erupted in 2004 as the mastermind behind Fat Joe's mega-hit "Lean Back." From there, Storch was producing for some of the top names in the music industry. He disappeared from the business after suffering from cocaine addiction and was soon making headlines for blowing through his money and filing for bankruptcy. Dormant for a few years, the Miami-based super-producer is back to concocting monster tracks. He's been in the studio working on projects for everyone from Rick Ross and Eminem to Britney Spears and Rihanna.
