Shots Fired: Scott Storch - Built Like Dat (Timbaland Diss)
Scott Storch ft. Nox - Built Like Dat (Timbaland Diss)
It took a little jab from Timbaland to make Scott Storch pick up the mic? This might be the first intriguing producer battle of our era. Not in terms of talent--because neither Tim nor Scott can rap his way out of jail--but, this is everything the JD/Dre feud wasn't. Balanced. Legit. Yet establishes nothing.
Storch started off as a founding member of The Roots and ended up making doo-doo songs with Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan. On the other hand, Tim's pop production prowess has never been in question. He's better recognized for the Aaliyah tracks than for crafting one of the toughest beats on a Jay-Z album. Which is why it's a good idea for Scott to stick with non-music-related disses here: "Whatchu tryin to lose weight, try to gain some respect".
Oh, in case you're wondering how it all started, Timbaland hauled some thin-veiled insults at Storch on his new single, "Give It to Me," and claims to have recorded another diss to the "Piano Man" on his new album. Something about beat-jacking and whatnot.
And beef keeps evolving...
