The December issue of hip hop magazine The Source has an interview with producer Scott Storch. In it, Storch talks about how he’s upset with Justin Timberlake not giving him credit for the track ‘Cry Me A River.’ An excerpt from the interview reads: “In the past, laying in the cut wasn’t a problem for this low key heat maker. But now the hungry track lacer has grown impatient with those taking credit for his creative genius. In fact, at the 2003 MTV VMAs he was dissed by boy band alumnus Justin Timberlake, who publicily big upped Timbaland for his work on ‘Cry Me a River’, but failed to mention Storch, the tracks co producer. ‘Justin went up there and acted like me and Timbaland didn’t both equally create that song just so that he could seem cooler and more down,’ says Storch, visibly upset, ‘But that’s okay, he’ll never get another Scott Storch track.’ Storch’s irritation with the blond boy wonder is bigger than ego tripping – these public signs of support could make the difference, helping him solidify his status as one of music industry’s elite producers. ‘When you tell people that you did something on a record, and then you don’t get the public credit, folks start to question your credibility. What else do I have to do? I’ve been making music for ten years’.”
