Superproducer Scott Storch Unbelievable Tool

I’ve always kind of hated Scott Storch, the former Roots keyboardist (listed in the liners of Do You Want More?!?! as “dessert chef”) turned pop mega-producer. But my casual distaste for his tinny, fake Middle-Eastern faux-Dre beats has turned into deepest, blackest loathing. THE MOTHERFUCKER DECIDED TO RAP.
And not just any kind of rap—the self-proclaimed “Tuff Jew” is using his debut on the mic to diss Timbaland, an actual skilled producer (who, admittedly, also has no business rapping). “Built Like Dat” is Storch’s rebuttal to what he felt was Timbaland dissing him on Justin Timberlake’s “Give It To Me”:
I’m a real producer and you just a piano man…
The beef all stems to another JT song, “Cry Me A River,” which Storch alleges he produced in some part, though he received no credit. OK, fine, it’s well-known that producers employ studio musicians and ghost producers to write parts, such as Storch in the cases of both Timbo and Dr. Dre. Timbaland talking shit on other producers is also well-documented—check Timbo’s answering-machine addition to Eminem & Dr.Dre’s Jermaine Dupri-bashing “Say What You Say.” Producer beef, silly as it is, is only natural what with hiphop producers being more famous than the rappers that hire them.
HOWEVER! None of this means I should have to endure the sight of the gelled-up, stunna-clad Storch posing hard. None of this means I should have to stomach his “hot bars,” comparing the back of Timbaland’s neck to a pack of franks. Scotty Boy looks like a shiny-shirt Belltown Red Bull & Vodka junkie, just aching to run down somebody in his rimmed-up Excursion. In other words, he can’t talk.
So share my misery. Below I’ve posted up the JT video that set it off, and Storch’s abortion of a response.
Justin Timberlake- Give It To Me
Scott Storch f/Nox- Built Like Dat
The only thing that could possibly make me feel better after all that is someone hilariously prank calling Storch (and maybe Hulk Hogan)—oh thank god.
