Beyoncé’s “Naughty Girl” and “Baby Boy.” 50 Cent’s “Candy Shop.” Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter.” Terror Squad’s “Lean Back.” Chris Brown’s “Run It.” Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E.” Scott Storch has produced so many hip-hop, pop and R&B hits, it’s hard to keep track.
Storch will mix it up and try something new this weekend when he hosts and performs at LAX. “We want to start doing some innovative things, so for Vegas I’ll be playing keyboards along with my DJ, and we’ll do a lot of the hits I’ve produced,” he says. “I’m not used to doing all that, so I had to be pushed into doing it, but ... I’ve been working on a bunch of different things lately, expanding my horizons.”
Storch, the man behind current hit “All Eyez” featuring The Game and Jeremih, is digging into several diverse opportunities right now, from his own cannabis brand to a reality TV show to a possible biopic about his life called Piano Man. But music will always be his focus, and even though he’s working with a ton of new artists like French Montana and Jason Derulo, there’s one special project on his mind.
“I’m focused on putting together a Scott Storch album. I’m definitely obsessed with that right now,” he says. “I’ve been in the industry 20 years and done so many songs, but I never did a proper album of [my own]. I think the timing is finally right, but I’m not going to rush it.” Scott Storch at LAX at Luxor, October 29.
