Description

While Kid Rock was unquestionably the rock 'n' roll story of 1999 with the explosive success of his Top Dog/Lava/Atlantic debut, DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE, it's important to remember that this envelope-pushing artist comes equipped with a vital history. That said, 2000 marks the release of this specially assembled Kid Rock compilation, comprised of dramatically reworked tracks from the artist's THE POLYFUZE METHOD (1993) and EARLY MORNIN' STONED PIMP (1996) albums - along with a previously unreleased, rafter-rattling recording "American Bad Ass" featuring samples of Metallica's "Sad But True." from these kick ass archives come such gems as the Superfly-flavored "E.M.S.P.," the cool-flowing "Paid," and the gangsta-styled "Ya' Keep On" - all remixed, revamped and unrelenting. It's here that Detroit's Pimp of the Nation is found mastering his verbal skills as well as laying down the genre-busting jams that would soon blow the doors open when brought to bear on his break-out, RIAA seven-times-platinum DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE. Hear where it all began!

Kid Rock

Artist Photo
Profile
Name at birth: Robert James Ritchie
A self-proclaimed redneck from the midwestern United States, Kid Rock's catchy mix of rap and country-influenced hard rock took him to pop stardom after his 1998 release Devil Without A Cause. He grew up near Detroit, Michigan, but in 1991 he moved to New York City to further his career. Although he had landed his first record contract in 1990, record labels weren't quite sure how to promote a white rapper who blended heavy metal and country rock. His albums The Polyfuze Method (1993) and Early Mornin' Stone Pimp (1996) featured lyrics too nasty to play on the radio, but relentless touring and a gift for self-promotion earned Kid Rock a cult following. By 1999 he and his band, Twisted Brown Trucker, were performing in arenas and causing sparks on MTV. In 2000 Kid Rock released The History of Rock, a collection of re-mixes and older material. He began dating actress Pamela Anderson in 2001; they became engaged in April of 2002

Extra credit: Kid Rock's 3'9" sidekick, Joe C., died of Celiac disease in November of 2000.
