Kid Rock Lists Motor City Mansion and Boathouse (

In late December, rapper and country-rock star Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie (and who sometimes goes by the name DJ Bobby Shazam), expressed via Facebook his frustration with his longtime home city of Detroit. Ritchie grew up in Romeo, Mich., but has long resided in and around Detroit, a city he has adopted, supported and championed. There were reports, however, he might be done with Detroit. And indeed, he’s opted not to renew a licensing deal for his Made in Detroit restaurant at Little Caesars Arena, reportedly dismantled the longtime recording studio on his farm in nearby Clarkston, Mich., and now his Motor City manse, a grand river-front spread in a leafy neighborhood just a handful of miles west of downtown, has popped up for sale with Tim Cook at Skyline Realty Group at $2.2 million.
