Matt Allen, known on stage as Nur-D, hit the MN Hip Hop scene in 2018 and has since performed at Soundset, shared the stage with Atmosphere, Tyler the Creator, Migos, and the Wu Tang Clan, and toured with Brother Ali. His album Songs About Stuff was featured by the StarTribune as one of the Best MN Albums of 2019. As a self-proclaimed goofy nerd who loves comic books and pro-wrestling, Matt brings an authentic, boundary-crossing style to the industry. His debut albums could be characterized as “clean rap”, free from cursing and featuring topics ranging from video games to body positivity.
