GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — All summer long, KARE11 Sunrise is bringing you local and live music on Friday morning as the world begins to open back up and people can gather again. It's part of our MN Bands Together summer concert series.
Nur-D is a hip-hop artist based in the Twin Cities. His real name is Matt Allen. He jokingly likes to refer to himself as your seventh favorite hip-hop artist.
Nur-D recently helped found FairPlay Entertainment, a collective of artists, producers, and entertainment entities collaborating to elevate the next generation of talent.
Nur-D released the first part of his album "38th" in October 2020. The second part of the album "Chicago" was released in December. He spoke to KARE11 about that year, and that album.
