Scott Storch‘s mother, Joyce Yolanda Storch, has questioned why her son has not financially supported her.
Yolanda compared her relationship with Storch to that of rap stars like Diddy, Kanye West, Jay-Z and their mothers.
“Scott always told me he had plans to do certain things for the family,” she said in an interview. “But then I guess things got bad before he got around to it. I read about all these other rappers’ mothers — P. Diddy’s mother, Kanye West’s mother, Jay-Z’s mother. Their sons all took care of them. If he reads this, he would be very angry at me. He’s not going to ever give me anything. I think that maybe you should make sure your mother has her retirement taken care of before you buy another $2 million necklace for some hotel heiress. You don’t just have a miracle from God like that and then take all that money and throw it in the garbage pail.” (Miami New Times)
Late last year, Storch spoke on hip-hop artists helping him fight drug addiction.
“It’s just a matter of regaining respect and trust, but as far as track record, I think I have done way above the average producer in the world,” Storch explained in an interview. “My addiction was based on being trapped in it through, not so much, depression or escape, but it was more like partying too much and having too much fun until it got unhealthy. I just made a change in my life. It really isn’t a battle or a constant thing. Its just something I don’t want to do. I like the way I feel so it hasn’t been a thought…Dre was there for me. I remember Ludacris came over to check on me to make sure I was ok, just having heard stuff. Different people that care about me…my boy Adam. You know, just various people have remained loyal to me. Quincy Jones. I would have to say Timbaland.” (All Hip Hop)
Earlier this year, Storch talked about the efforts he made to better himself.
“I’m taking it back to square one,” he explained in an interview last April. “I found myself slipping a little bit, got involved in doing drugs and you know, I had to get myself into recovery, realized I was powerless over it and you know, being in the life that I was living, very fast moving, option to do or buy anything you want, go anywhere you wanna go definitely takes its toll on you. And you lose your concept of reality with the drugs and everything, had to get it under control so I’m taking it back to the beginning, back to the Hit Factory where I made a lot of my hits.” (MTV)
The producer is reportedly responsible for Dr. Dre and Jay-Z’s upcoming “Under Pressure” record.
Famed Grammy Award winning producer Scott Storch has come together with legendary Grammy Award winning super-producer Dr. Dre to produce the long awaited first single, “Under Pressure” off the highly anticipated album, “Detox.” This project has been in the works for some time, which has created a wave of hope and anticipation. Storch has worked with Dr. Dre in the past on such classics as, “Still D.R.E,” “The Chronic 2000″ and the Grammy award winning rapper Eve‘s single, “Let Me Blow Your Mind.” This collaborative effort always forfeits great results creatively. Bluewave Group, Inc. President Derek Jackson said, “To see Scott Storch and Dr. Dre back together, signifies the change in the music industry climate as we know it. This will definitely get the industry back in step with the world.” (Market Wire)
