Lil Wayne has revealed plans to release a new album of love songs in an interview with MTV's Hip-Hop POV. The project, titled Devol, was crafted while the rapper was incarcerated at Rikers Island in 2010. "I was recording an album at the same time called Devol, spelled D-E-V-O-L, 'cause that's 'love' spelled backwards," he explained.

Fans shouldn't expect traditional ballads from the prolific emcee. "It's my version of love songs," he says. "What I mean by my version of love songs is they're not saying 'I love you.'"

You can watch a clip of Weezy from the episode of Hip-Hop POV below. No release date has been set for Devol.
