Lil Wayne’s next project will be full of his version of love songs, all of which were written in prison.
Weezy spoke to MTV and revealed that his follow-up to last year’s double-platinum Tha Carter IV album will be titled Devol.
Yup, that’s ‘loved’ spelled backwards, but he pronounced it ‘devil’, which gives us an insight into an album full of what he described as “my version of love songs.”
“What I mean by my version of love songs is meaning they’re not saying, ‘I love you’, they’re saying…” and he trails off chuckling.
The songs were written during his stint at Rikers Island in 2010. “It’s all material I did when I was locked up,” he said.
There’s no word on a release date, but Lil Wayne has mentioned that he’ll release a sequel to the excellent I Am Not A Human Being mixtape in the middle of this year.
