Kid Rock (Robert James Ritchie, 1971-) is an American singer and rapper from Michigan who incorperated Hard Rock and Country into his music. At the age of 11, he was break-dancing in a Break-Dance crew, and used the money made to get Turntable equipment. He then played as a DJ who'd play in clubs for beer. He got his nickname after club-goers commented that "white kid that can rock".

He formed the rap group The Beast Crew with local rapper Music/{{Champtown}}, but it broke up when Kid Rock signed to Jive Records. He released his LP ''Grit Sandwiches for Breakfast'' soon afterwards in 1990, but it was perceived as being a BeastieBoys ripoff. So he was dropped from the record label for the album's weak reception. However, the album was popular enough for Kid Rock to be considered the biggest rapper in Detroit at the time; Music/InsaneClownPosse even tapped him for an appearance on their debut, ''Carnival of Carnage'', despite the fact that Violent J thought that Kid Rock's rapping was weak, although a lyric in Kid's "Ya Keep On" suggests that the feeling is mutual.

Kid's next two albums, ''The Polyfuze Method'' and ''Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp'', were released independently. To help with the recording, Kid Rock recruited a band of musicians known as the "Twisted Brown Trucker", providing the instrumental back-drop for his rhymes.

* NewSoundAlbum: Happened twice; once with ''Devil Without A Cause'' which saw a change from [[HardcoreHipHop hardcore rhyming]] over sampled riffs, to a southern fried RapRock sound. The second time was ''Kid Rock'', which saw him making Southern Rock and almost completely ditching HipHop.
** And yet again with ''Born Free'', which outside of an appearance by T.I. is entirely Heartland rock.
* NWordPrivileges: He doesn't get these.

** "Picture" had different edits to censor the line "Fueling up on cocaine and whiskey". One version changed "cocaine" to "water", and another just muted the word entirely.



* FakeShemp: Due to label issues, the official single version of "Picture" has Allison Moorer singing Music/SherylCrow's part. However, most stations played the Sheryl Crow version anyway, and it was even listed as "Kid Rock with Sheryl Crow or Allison Moorer" on the charts.
** He also recorded the song with Gretchen Wilson on the ''Live Trucker'' album.
