Kid Rock

"Robert James Richie" (born January 17, 1971), best known as "Kid Rock", is an American rapper, singer, and rock musician.

Robert James Ritchie was born in Romeo, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Growing up, Ritchie and his father, a well-to-do car dealer in the area, frequently disagreed over the young Ritchie's lifestyle choices. Following a lawn mower accident that resulted in his brother, Billy, losing a leg, his father shifted the burden of holding down the house and all the reponsibilty of his brother on to the young Robert (as evidenced by the song "My Oedipus Complex"). This led to increased friction between the two.

Richie eventually left home and moved to the housing projects in Mount Clemens, Michigan, where he took his Sears brand turntables to the basement parties hoping for a chance to play. Bo Wisdom of Groove Time Production offered him an opportunity to spin for the crowd; their enthusiasm for the young DJ led Wisdom to dub him with his new moniker, after watching "that kid rock".

After working with Groove Time Productions and the Beastcrew laying down some demos, Jive Records offered him a contract at the relatively young age of 17. Agains...
