Scott Storch Sued For Being Too High To Produce Records
This is where a Notorious B.I.G. quote will suffice. “If you think a crackhead paying ya back, forget it.”
Scott Storch, the one time hottest producer in Hip-Hop, has fallen off considerably thanks to an alleged drug problem. Now the former Roots affiliate is being sued by an artist who claims he failed to deliver music he promised to produce for her album.
TMZ reports that Treena Ruberg paid Storch $45,000 (with $30,ooo paid in advance) to prouduce six tracks for the would be singer back in October 2011 (this is where we mention Storch was popped for concealing a bag of that white in Vegas just this February). Considering that Storch has produced records for the likes of Dr. Dre, Fat Joe and Beyonce, to name a few, Ruberg was getting a bargain.
However, in a lawsuit Ruberg filed in L.A. County Superior Court, she claims Storch was unable to deliver the music as planned thanks to his ongoing drug habit. Now Ruberg wants her $30K back along with $70K more for wasted studio time, plane tickets and other super producer incidentals she came out of pocket for.
