His sound is a mix of styles from urban rap to country. Somehow he has appealed to many tastes in music because he has sold 27 Million albums world wide and filled arenas from coast to coast that is equal parts music to mayhem. He has his own recording studio at his sprawling Detroit estate home all enclosed in a mount Vernon style mansion close to downtown. He could care less what people think of him or his music. I guess especially since he is so wealthy now.
He was born Robert Ritchie from a middle class family in Romeo Michigan and was the son of a car dealer. He always knew he would be successful at music but never thought he would be this successful. As a teen he moved out and liveds in the inner city of Detroit never being thrown out of his parents home. He just wanted to go. After hanging out with the rappers, in 1998 he put out there the song Devil Without A Cause and he instantly became known.
