Hip-hop artist and producers Timbaland left little doubt who inspired his combative song, “Give It to Me,” at club Marquee the other night, when he announced to the shocked crowd, “Scott Storch is a bitch!”
Eloquent, Timbaland. Eloquent.
Scott Storch, the producer who has worked with Beyoncé, 50 Cent and Jessica Simpson, among other hacks, used to be pals with Timbaland.
But they had a falling-out. Timbaland’s “Give It to Me,” featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado, contains lyrics thought to refer to Storch:
“I get a half a mil for my beats/You get a couple grand. Never gonna see the day that I ain’t got the upper hand. I’m respected from Californ-i-a way down to Japan. I’m a real producer and you just a piano man.”
Scott, you just got Storched, my friend. All we know is that someone has to get The Game involved in this somehow, in order for it to be a real hip-hop feud.
Reps for Timbaland have claimed the song is not about anyone particular in the industry, but he made liars out of them when he jumped on Marquee’s turntables last week.
Celebrating after his show with Justin Timberlake at the Meadowlands, Timbaland was given a microphone and started improvising, clubgoers told the New York Post. Rapping along to his lyrics, Timbaland yelled, “Scott Storch, I’m a real producer and you just a piano man.”
The crowd was “shocked,” said Post spies. “But when he called Storch ‘a bitch,’ that pretty much cleared up any confusion over who that song is about.”
Storch released his own single via YouTube in March, “Built Like That,” in which he lashed out against his one-time ally for stealing the producing credits on Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River,” a scathing track (about Britney Spears) on which Storch worked but was not credited.
In his rebuttal, Storch raps about Timbaland’s pal Nate “Danja” Hills:
“Your boy Danja got to hate you with a passion, man/He makes the hits while you taking all the credit, damn! I know the feeling, I’m with ya/Won’t you tell them how I made that [bleep] ‘Cry Me a River.'”
Why don’t you cry us a river, Scott Storch. Punk ass.
