Music producer Scott Storch‘s road to recovery following a publicized downward spiral of drug abuse and bankruptcy has reached a high point with him completing debt education school.
According to reports, Storch completed a court-ordered educational program earlier this month.
The judge in Storch’s bankruptcy case ordered him to take a course in financial management. Storch — who’s produced tracks for Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce — was down to $100 in cash, some clothes, and a watch after a string of poor decisions … including reportedly blowing through $30 mil just on drugs.

Last year, West Coast rapper Game revealed plans to work with Storch.
“The Blood Money project – it’s coming this year. I got a bunch of new artists on there,” Game revealed in an interview. “I got Wale on there, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Tyga, it’s a bunch. It’s good music. You know me, man. It’s going to have the right beats and the right sound. … The Documentary 2, I’m going back to the Just Blaze’s, the Scott Storch’s, the Dr. Dre’s.” (“LA Leakers”)
Storch previously said he was determined for an intimate Jay Z studio session.
“Yeah, I definitely want a hit record with Jay Z. He has his crew he works with, and I’ve floated around them a few times, [Memphis] Bleek with the “Murda Murda” joint, I co-produced “Hola Hovito” with Timbaland, and a couple other records. But one-on-one, me and that dude are going to get a hit record. Just for the child in me that has to have it. Not just any song on an album, but a true hit that has its place in music history.” (Complex)
In 2014, Storch spoke out on working with rap veteran Fat Joe.
Footage of the two reigniting the flame that brought them the “Lean Back” monster smash back in 2004 reveals Storch sharing how he met Joe, and the significance of their reunion. “I let a lot of people down a lot of times. He and I, we’d come together a few times a couple years back,” he shared. “And he was kind of disappointed I guess, because I didn’t have that fire. I wasn’t cookin’ it up. And now to come and f-ckin’ reunite together, after he’s back home and he’s inspired and doing his thing again, it’s such good timing.” (VIBE)
