Kid Rock Information Continued
In 1998, the album "Devil Without a Cause" was released, producing instant number one hits like "Bawitdaba," "Cowboy," and "Only God Knows Why." The album was a collaboration of Kid Rock, Twisted Brown Trucker, and Uncle Kracker.
Kid Rock (real name Robert James Ritchie, born in 1971 in Romeo, Michigan) is a rapcore musician. Kid Rock derives his name from his early years of rapping in parking lots and bars, when, so Kid Rock says, listeners would remark, "Look at that white kid rock." Kid Rock dropped "white," and his stage name was born. His first album, Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast, was released in 1989.
Kid Rock began his hip-hop career at the age of 15. He became well-known in a Mount Clemens, Michigan housing project because of his unique style of rapping. He later moved to New York City, where he was said to have lived just below Queen Latifah. Kid Rock got to know a lot of the area's rappers and landed a tour deal with Ice Cube and Too $hort when he was only 18 years old.
In 1998, Kid Rock joined Atlantic Records and released Devil Without a Cause. This was his first real success with the album going 11x platinum in the US, almost becoming one of the top 50 top selling albums ever.
Kid Rock has also gained country music acclaim for such notable performances as "Picture," a duet with Sheryl Crow; his performance of "Luckenbach, Texas" on the Waylon Jennings tribute album I've Always Been Crazy; and his appearance on Country Music Television's Crossroads episode with Hank Williams Jr..
