Scott Storch has been making hot beats for over a decade. His skills once made him a wanted man by hip-hop and R&B acts.
But now his dead-beat ways have got him wanted by the cops. And that's not exactly the kind of hot drop you want as a big-time producer.
Turns out, bro won't pay child support. And Florida courts ain't having none of that.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the famed producer behind hits like Erykah Badu's "You Got Me" and Beyonce's "Naughty Girl" has failed to pay $28,300 in baby-daddy fees. To top it off, he missed his court date. So now there's a warrant in this state out for his arrest.
Storch can avoid jail time if he makes it rain all those daddy dollars before the cops catch him. But when has a hip-hopper ever used the get-out-of-jail-free card?
That's not the only money trouble that this guy's got. He also skipped out on a $4,000 bill at a Beverly Hills Hotel.
Is Scotty totally broke? Sounds like it's time to get off the coke. Head back to the studio. And grind out hits till the bills get paid.
