Nur-D embraces comics, video games and insecurity to be Minnesota hip-hop's new superhero
There's a serious side to the comics-loving rapper who tops the Best New Bands showcase.

Nur-D’s comic-book hero analogy #1: “I felt like Peter Parker in Sam Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man 3’ movie, when he gets the black suit and walks around acting like he’s all cool and badass. It just made him look all the nerdier.”
Matt “Nur-D” Allen didn’t have to look far while browsing the long aisle of new issues at Source Comics & Games in Roseville — his favorite store — to think up a comparison to his short-lived rock band.
“We were trying way too hard to be cool, and it was obvious we weren’t,” he said of Black Genesis, which called it quits in 2018.
That’s when the 29-year-old Rosemount native decided to embrace his nerdiness, like Peter Parker putting on his old red superhero suit again. It’s also when he finally decided to step out as a rapper, a talent he avoided showing off earlier, he said, “because I didn’t want to do what was expected of me.”
“As one of the only black kids growing up in Rosemount, everybody expected me to rap and beatbox,” he said.
Two years since his transformation into the fun-loving but mindful rap star Nur-D, Allen has unexpectedly turned into one of the most buzzed-about newcomers in Minnesota hip-hop.
