“It was a culture shock for me,” the producer and songwriter said of joining The Roots.
Scott Storch was the focus of a Red Bull Music Academy lecture in Canada, where he talked about everything from auditioning for The Roots to working with Dr. Dre.
In regards to the former topic, Storch recalled befriending Richard Nichols, who went on to become The Roots’ manager.
“He took me under his wing, eventually after my parents found out I wasn’t going to school they said ‘You either go to school and you can stay or you gotta go’ and I went,” Storch said. “I did odd jobs and did whatever I had to do to support myself at 15, 16 years-old, and I got a record deal with The Roots.”
