Two legends of the '00s are back working, perhaps on a joint for the endlessly awaited "Carter V."
After lengthy struggles with money and addiction, Scott Storch is working hard to get himself back to the hitmaker he was in the mid-'00s. He showed a major return to form with Rick Ross and Chris Brown's "Sorry" at the end of last year, and this summer, he got a big-time credit with The Game and Jeremih's "All Eyez." He is now working with another star with whom he created some classic records in the previous decade: Lil Wayne. He posted a birds-up selfie of himself and Weezy in the studio and suggested that the pair's reunion will be sure to ease the anguish of the presidential election.
"Election is over and Storch is at least here to make hits," wrote the producer of "You Ain't Know," a single off Lil Wayne and Birdman's 2006 album Like Father, Like Son. Weezy has also been a featured artist on a few standout Storch productions, including Fat Joe's "Make It Rain," the remix of Chris Brown's "Gimme That," and Mya's "Lock U Down."
Wayne going ham on a Storch beat would be a good look for Carter V, if that ever comes out. Who thinks the veteran pairing can turn whatever they're working on into a Billboard smash?
