Michigan, US native Bob Ritchie (born January 17th, 1971) a.k.a Kid Rock , has forged a career of over twenty years through his infectious party anthems that meld rap, rock and country into his inimitable style, as the self-proclaimed ‘King of White Trash.’

Growing up in the small rural town of Romeo, north of Detroit, US, Ritchie found a love for hip hop, finding the music and lifestyle to provide an escape from the banality of small town life, creating his own rap music as well as breakdancing. Influenced by Beastie Boys’ fusion of rap and rock, Ritchie developed his own style under the name of Kid Rock, eventually gaining a record contract with Jive Records in 1990, after impressing through a support slot performance for Boogie Down Productions. His debut album, “Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast” arrived shortly after, which was heavily indebted to Beastie Boys “License to Ill,” achieving notoriety through the profanity-heavy single, “Yodelin’ in the Valley.” Kid Rock toured with Too Short and Ice Cube following the album’s release, although Jive Records dropped him from their roster shortly after.

A move to Brooklyn, US, helped to reignite his career, signing to Continuum for 1993’s “The Polyfuze Method,” which moved towards a harder rock sound. The release received mixed reviews yet gave Ritchie the encouragement to continue making music. Another album, “Early Mornin’ Stoned Pimp,” arrived in 1996, with Kid Rock forming a band shortly after, having returned to Detroit, US. The band featured Joseph Calleja (vocals), Kenny Olson (guitar), Jason Krause (guitar), Jimmy Bones (keyboards), Stefanie Eulinberg (drums), Uncle Kracker (DJ/Turntablist) and Misty Love and Shirley Hayden (backing vocals).

With the rise in popularity of Nu-Metal, Kid Rock received interest from Atlantic Records, who decided to sign the artist for his 1998 release, “Devil Without a Cause.” Extensive airplay on MTV helped bolster Kid Rock’s popularity, becoming a superstar with a Top Five, Multi-Platinum selling album. Ritchie also became famous for his much publicized relationship with Pamela Anderson, receiving significant interest from the tabloid press.

Kid Rock returned in 2001 with “Cocky,” featuring the hit single, “Forever.” Rock gained a number one album with “Rock N Roll Jesus” in 2007, selling 172,000 copies in its first week. The hit single, “All Summer Long” became a massive success, a mashup of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s classic, “Sweet Home Alabama.” 2010’s “Born Free” also charted well at number five, an album that featured a number of artists, including Bob Seger, Trace Adkins, Zac Brown, Sheryl Crow and T.I. Kid Rock continued to tour relentlessly, not returning to the studio until 2012, for “Rebel Soul.”
