Kid Rock Rethinks The Kid Part As He Nears 40

There’s no question he still knows how to rock but, as he nears 40 Kid Rock is rethinking the Kid part of his name.

The singer/rapper, who was born Robert Ritchie, selected the name when he was just a teenager, and now realizes he may have made a mistake. It’s “the worst name in the world,” he tells Esquire.

“The only person who had a dumber name than me was the Fresh Prince [Will Smith]. Hey, it sounded like a cool rap name when I was 16, but it stuck, and now it’s me. I’ll be an 88-year-old man [saying], ‘Call me the Kid!’”
