Kid Rock Biography

Kid Rock was born Robert Ritchie on January 17, 1971 in Romeo, Michigan, a small rural town north of the Detroit metro area. He is known as a performer of rap music, notably combining rap with the sounds of more traditional rock music and even country music. This third of four children felt bored to live in such small town without nothing to do, except the routine Sunday ceremony at church his Catholic family forced him to attend. Because of that he immersed himself in rap music, learned to break-dance, and began making the talent-show rounds in Detroit.

And it was in 1988 when Rock got a chance to record his first demos, which eventually scored an opening slot at a Boogie Down Productions gig. That demos led him to a contract with Jive Records, which issued his debut album namely "Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast," released in 1990. Produced by Kid Rock, Too $hort, and D-Nice, the album was heavily derivative of "Licensed to Ill," the Beastie Boys debut album released in 1986, by which Rock briefly became notorious when a New York college radio station aired the album's profanity-laced ode to oral sex, "Yodelin' in the Valley." Yet, after sometimes of cooperation, Jive finally dropped him mainly because they didn't see "more" than his tour with Too $hort and Ice Cube.
