Biography of Kid Rock
Kid Rock was born and named Robert James Ritchie on January 17, 1971, in Romeo, Michigan. His love for hip-hop led him to join a breakdance crew at the age of 11.
He taught himself how to operate a scrappy turntable and later employed his skills to earn $30 per night at basement parties while attending Romeo High School.
As a teenager, Ritchie began living at Mt. Clemens, Michigan where he became part of a rap group called “The Beast Crew”.
His impressive performance with the crew led to his first record deal with Jive Records in 1988. He was just 17 years old and his parents didn’t approve of it. Regardless, he went ahead with the deal.
The career of Kid Rock
Even though his career started slowly, it eventually took off with his sixth album “Devil Without a Cause” in 1998. The album became a massive hit internationally. It eventually sold over 13 million albums worldwide.
This album featured singles like “Bawitdaba”, “Cowboy” and “Only God Knows Why”. After the success of Devil, Kid released “The History of Rock”, which was a compilation of remixed versions of songs from previous albums.
This song featured the audience-favorite rock single, “American Bad Ass”. Later on, Kid became more rock-, country-, and blues-oriented, starting with 2001’s album Cocky.
This album spawned the chart-topping single “Picture”, which was a collaboration with Sheryl Crow.
The song became his first country hit, as well as his biggest pop hit in the US to date. Another notable effort was Rock’s 2010 album “Born Free”, which featured an eponymous song which was also the political campaign theme of Mitt Romney.
To date, Kid Rock has sold over 5 million albums in the United States, and 27 million worldwide. This makes him one of the most successful American musicians of the last 15 years.
Kid Rock also made headlines for his on-again-off-again relationship with actress star Pamela Anderson, a saga that started in 2001.
They married in a surprise wedding in 2006 but divorced a few months later, as he wanted to live in Detroit and Anderson wanted to stay in Los Angeles.
