Rising to prominence as a rapper in and around Detroit in the 1980s as a member of hip hop group The Beast Crew, American singer-songwriter, rapper, musician, record producer and actor Kid Rock began as a self-taught breakdancer, rapper, DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist, and today plays all the instruments in his backing band. By 1988, a series of demos produced by Insane Clown Posse producer Mike E. Clark led to a bidding war for Kid Rock between six major record labels, including Atlantic and CBS Records. Rock signed with Jive Records that year, releasing his debut studio album Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast and launching his career as one of Detroit's most famous hip hop artists. Ten years later, after the release of several successful hip hop albums, Rock released Devil Without a Cause, which featured the distinct blend of country, rap and rock that Kid Rock has become known for. A mainstream breakthrough, the album was eventually certified eleven-times platinum by the RIAA. Rock continued to release a string of successful studio albums, with a concentration solely on sung country music between 2007 – 2015. Rock's most recent album, 2017's Sweet Southern Sugar, was a return to rap for the artist.
