According to an exclusive interview by Amanda Seales from MTV’s new weekly late-night talk show “Hip Hop POV”, Lil Wayne revealed he is working on a new album called Devol (pronounced “devil”). 

The word spells “Loved” backwards and showcases the many songs about love that he wrote while serving his time in prison.  Devol was a side project that he had been working on.

“I was also recording an album at the same time called Devol, spelled D-E-V-O-L ‘cause that’s ‘Loved’ spelled backwards,” Wayne said.  “And it’s my version of love songs.  And what I mean by my version of love songs is meaning they’re not saying I love you. It’s all material I did when I was locked up.”

Before the "Lollipop" rapper can release this love album, he will have to drop the long-awaited "I Am Not a Human Being Part 2" album this summer, according to Young Money president Mack Main

It was also revealed that Weezy re-signed on to Cash Money Records under a 4-album deal, showing his loyalty to the record label.

“Everybody knows I came into the game at 11 years old with Cash Money Records, before we even had a major deal,” he said. “We signed a deal in I don’t remember when, and I been with Cash Money ever since. So if you’re looking for integrity, I am the definition.  If you’re looking for a person that’s gonna stay down, I am the definition. If you’re looking for loyalty, I am just that.”

With "Tha Carter IV" last summer, "I Am Not a Human Being Part 2" this summer, and his new side project "Devol," Lil Wayne has a lot in store for his fans.
