1st of all........ Scott Storch is FLAT BROKE........... he has been for a minute...... matter fact....... the news caught the repo man at Lil' Kims house tryna get the benz he bought her....... Forbes needs to do some more research.........

2nd...... I was LMFAO at Forbes sayin' that Timbaland was one of the most influential producers in Hip-Hop.......

3rd...... I know Young Joc aint makin' no $10 Million...... this negro only had one single...... the only way he can possibly get $10 Million is if he gave Diddy fellatio and Diddy paid him $10 Million.......

That's an old ass list.

But yeah, Timbaland ain't influenced nobody. Maybe he only popularized used of synths.
