One of the fastest rising stars in Minnesota's music scene, Nur-D burst onto the stage in 2018 and has been making headlines ever since. Performing on stages alongside national acts like Migos, Logic, Tyler The Creator, and The Wu Tang Clan, Nur-D is well on his way to becoming a household name. Voted "Best New MN Artist" in 2019 (Citypages), "Best New Bands" show headliner in 2020 (First Avenue), and "Best Live Concert 2021" (Citypages), Nur-D brings an explosion of energy every time he hits the stage. With five full length projects, each with their own flair, to his discography, Nur-D has something special for any occasion. Whether you're going out on the town with "Take My Picture", wanting to get close with a special someone with"Chi-Chi", or you cue up "38th" or "Chicago Avenue" to experience the range of emotions that was birthed from the Minneapolis uprising in 2021, Nur-D has something for you. Nur-D is a breath of fresh air in the Hip-Hop world and people are feeling it. Boasting a fervent fan base across the US and around the globe, if you haven't heard the name Nur-D yet, you certainly will soon. Imagine the soulful sounds of Bruno Mars or Childish Gambino, the powerful energy of Lizzo, the pop culture punchlines of an episode of "Community", all rolled up into a show that everyone can enjoy, ala The Fresh Prince. It's easy to see why many people are calling Nur-D "the next big thing to come out of Minnesota".
