You cannot define Kid Rock musically. He is rock, he is rap, he is country. He is also a five-time Grammy nominee who has sold more than 25 million records worldwide.
Kid Rock is also filthy rich and proud of it. It says he worked hard for the money and now that he has it he isn’t afraid to flaunt it, whether that’s showing off his mansion, sports cars or private jet.
Robert Ritchie wasn’t always rich. For the most part of his early 20s he was on the poverty line and a single father raising a son. He might not have ever made it. It wasn’t until his 4th album ‘Devil Without A Cause’ when he clicked with the world. That record went on to sell 13 million.
Kid Rock tells a funny story in this interview about how his mother never spoke of him to her friends. After all he was working with “potty-mouth” rappers like Eminem. That all changed when he recorded ‘Picture’ with Sheryl Crow. He tells Noise11 that his mother was finally proud of him.
Kid Rock joined Paul Cashmere at Noise11.com to tell his story.
