One time mega-producer Scott Storch recently filed for bankruptcy after once holding a net worth of $70 million during his prime. Though these rise-and-fall stories are nothing new in the music industry, Storch's fall from grace was particularly hard. Storch, who has produced multiple top 10 hits for the likes of Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and more, saw his rise in the early 2000s, and then his peak in 2006 when he reached elite status as a producer and amassed the majority of his earnings. His biggest commercial hit to date, "Lean Back" by Fat Joe, topped the charts in 2006, which is the same year that he won the prestigious ASCAP "Songwriter of the Year" award.
Since that point it's been pretty much downhill, with Storch making a multitude of poor life decisions centered around financial troubles and well-known drug abuse. Storch's fall from fame was so drastic and quick that we decided to go through some of the key moments of the time period and try to shine some light on just where everything went wrong with one of the most famous hip-hop producers ever.
