It doesn’t take long to discover Delegation Music‘s true intent. Made up of rappers Juda and Navi, this DMV duo wants to keep things light. You can see it on their House Party-themed cover art, and hear it in their cartoonish flows.
Like on “Neva Felt the Pain,” a quick single from the crew’s recent House Party Mixtape, Vol. 1. On it, the locals use a soul-sampling track to rhyme about anything that comes to mind: Mega Man, Donald Trump (“’cause you know that shit been fired!”), Mr. Miyagi, and the Scooby-Doo van. It’s tough to find the focus here, but the potential is evident. There’s nothing wrong with a little fun.
