Hailing from Nocatee, Florida, Kenny Chambers, artistically styled as NOC Menace brings a different meaning to “country”. The moniker combines the love of his hometown with his mischievous childhood.
“I’m from Nocatee and I was always getting into things as a child, like Dennis the Menace. I shortened that to become NOC Menace.”
Inspired by his father and his eldest sister, NOC Menace began making music at the age of 12, under the name Yung Flawda. Though he proclaims not to have been good, it’s clear that the artist was experimenting with his sound and artistry. His father pushed him into sports, and Menace was awarded three athletic scholarships for college. A spot of trouble crushed those sports dreams, and once again he enveloped himself in the healing of music. With no classical training, NOC Menace looks to artists like Rod Wave, whose melodies carry hope and pain for inspiration.
This Nocatee native is the epitome of art that imitates life. His smooth sound and infectious flows paint tales of a small-town kid whose “Country Urban” lifestyle has sprung a new genre from the most unlikely crossover of music.
NOC Menace’s debut single “Country Boy Living” is now available on all streaming platforms!
