One of the fastest rising starts 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 house hold name.
Voted Best New MN Artist in 2019 (Citypages), Headlining The “Best New Bands” Show in 2020 (First Avenue), and being voted 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. Wether you’re going out on the town with “Take My Picture”, wanting to get cost ,with a special someone with “Chi-Chi”, or you cue up “38th” or “Chicago Avenue” to experience the range of emotions that 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 fans are feeling the same. 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.

Carnage The Executioner
Whether he’s rapping, producing, performing, teaching kids to beatbox, or working his former job as a youth counselor, it’s clear the man most commonly known as Carnage The Executioner was born to do two things: instruct and entertain. Musicians, dancers, DJs, poets, and television hosts who have worked with Carnage recognize his dedication to his craft and would confirm that he doesn’t disappoint. Ask emcees about Carnage’s skill level, and you’ll find out that the phrase, “he’s your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper,” actually fits.
A music fan since childhood, Carnage has filled his memory bank with thousands of references from all genres to draw from for his work. Carnage’s start as a human beatboxer has taken on a life of its own. He now uses technology like looping and effects pedals commonly used by guitarists. He enhances the experience of a live Hip-Hop show by allowing his audiences to hear original Carnage material and unique improvisations and spot-on recreations of popular songs. Carnage uses this same musical knowledge and technology to create custom, studio human beatbox tracks. His audio vision via mouth music can be heard on albums by Hip-Hop heavyweights Aesop Rock and R.A. The Rugged Man.
Carnage is a self-trained songwriter who’s skilled enough to compose a heart-felt story as easily as he can craft an intricate battle rap. Carnage gained national fame from his past guest appearances with Eyedea & Abilities. However, it’s his original songs that allow his fans to connect with him the most. Songs like Addict, Save My People, and The MTW Story give fans a glimpse into the real-life experiences of Carnage, the human being.
Local rap stars Skipp and Rixx of the old King In Disguise crew from back in the day, teamed up with Bubz to form Hells Paradise! They’ve been putting out plenty of new tunes over the past few years. They’ve played shows in town like Find Elysium, and opened for My Town My Music’s show at Kathy’s with Mac Irv and Nimic Revenue. They bring plenty of energy and we can’t wait to see what’s in store this time around.
Also from the K.i.D crew, we’re excited to have Lil Crazed joining Hells Paradise on stage to help set the party off. This Rochester native always seems at home with a mic in his hand and his feet on a stage. You won’t want to miss this hometown show!
