What does Beyonce’s Baby Boy, Mario’s Let Me Love You, Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s Lean Back, 50 Cent’s Candy Shop, and Fat Joe’s Make It Rain have in common? The answer is Scott Storch. Scott is a legendary producer and song writer to say the least, in the late ’90s/early ’00s, he blessed our ears with a bevy of hits.
Still Strong documents Scott Storch’s rise and fall, as well as his recent reemergence in the music industry. He talks about his early beginnings as a member of The Roots band to producing hits for an array of artists, artists like Beyoncé, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Fat Joe, Dr. Dre, Chris Brown, 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake, and many others.
The documentary also details how a combination of addiction and an obsession with the Miami party lifestyle led to the hit-making producer burning through and mismanaging his $100 million fortune.
“People have their bottoms, I shot through the bottom, and I went like a hundred thousand leaps beyond the sea bottom,” Storch says in the film. “I don’t know many people who could survive emotionally, mentally through what I went through.”
