Pianist and producer Scott Storch recalls how he wrote “You Got Me” in 1997 with and for a young Philadelphia singer named Jill Scott and how the song ultimately became part of the Roots’ groundbreaking third LP, Things Fall Apart.
Watch the full lecture – https://youtu.be/1roSPtYgo7w – to hear Storch discuss his career and the stories behind hits for Dr. Dre, Fat Joe, The Roots and many others.
Songwriter and producer Scott Storch is no stranger to success. After being drafted into hip-hop band The Roots in 1994 upon moving to Philadelphia, the group’s first album Do You Want More?!!!??! leaned heavily on Storch’s distinctive use of the Fender Rhodes and would help define their sound. Storch’s playing would eventually lead him to Dr. Dre, for whom he would come up with the classic piano riff found on “Still D.R.E.” From there, Storch would go on to feature in and produce hit records for the likes of Beyoncé, Fat Joe and Justin Timberlake, becoming one of the most sought after producers of the mid-2000’s in the process. His meteoric rise in the industry had its downsides though, the party lifestyle eventually leading to Storch entering rehab in 2009 and filing for bankruptcy in 2015. Since then, Storch has re-entered the music industry with more drive and inspiration than ever, working with some the most exciting names in modern rap, including Young Thug, Russ and Trippie Red.
