Loli Deville Project for NextGen Media - Besides Yourself



Loli Deville is a poet turned rapper, who seeks to be a breath of fresh air, in what some would say is an industry of polluted redundancy. Through storytelling, Deville addresses life's joys and tragedies. She also demonstrates her lyrical versatility in her new mixtape "Beautiful Beast." Deville's music is soulful and thought-provoking. Her aim is to be a positive influence on her peers, as well as other youth. Growing up on the South Side of Chicago, Loli developed a love for poetry and music and became skilled at writing by using both as a means to express herself. Her influences include Tupac Shakur, Dmx, Marvin Gaye, D’Angelo, Nina Simone, 50cent, Bob Marley and Lauryn Hill. “My musical taste have shaped every track you hear, every artists who has influenced me is who I’m attempting to be as great as every time I create. I’m their heirs to the throne.”

Deville produced the song "Besides Yourself" that talks about the issues of domestic violence and abuse against women for NextGen Media program.
