Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp was Kid Rock's third full length album, It was distributed by his own label, Top Dog Records. There are two pressings of this CD, the first, the 1996 original pressing, has the Top Dog logo on the actual CD while the 1999 reissue it just a basic labeled disc. Kid Rock used the money he made from his 1994/1995 monthly Bootleg Series cassettes as well as becoming the janitor at The White Room Studios to purchase recording time. "Intro" has been used by the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons at their games. This album is not backed musically by the Twisted Brown Trucker Band as many report. He did not start arranging the group into a full-fledged backing band until he began pushing for major label attention in 1997.

There are three different alternative covers for the cassette release. The first is commonly known as the "blurry" version. There is also a "Joe C" version and a very rare "CD cover" cassette as well. Kid Rock sold a green label pressing of the album in concert in 1999. The songs "Where U At Rock" and "Black Chick, White Guy" were remade for his Devil Without A Cause release. While "Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp", "Paid", "I Wanna Go Back", and "Ya Keep On" were completely rerecorded for the The History of Rock album with additional samples, piano parts, and guitar parts. The Prodigal Son Returns was the intro to Prodigal Son, but it was left off the final version from The Polyfuze Method. "Shotgun Blast" was renamed Blast in 1999 and was used on the soundtrack to WCW Mayhem: The Music.
