Lil Wayne Releasing Love Songs

Lil WayneLil Wayne is releasing an album of love songs.

The "Lollipop" rapper may reveal his tender side on the record - to be titled Devol - which was written when he was in jail on Riker's Island, New York, in 2010.

"I was recording an album called Devol, spelled D-E-V-O-L, 'cause that's 'loved' spelled backwards. It's all material I did when I was locked up," he told MTV News.

However, Wayne warned the tracks are not likely to be traditional ballads, but his own take on the love theme: "What I mean by my version of love songs is meaning they're not saying, 'I love you.'"

Wayne - real name Dwayne Carter - served eight months for attempted weapon possession in 2010, and since his release has put out two albums, I Am Not a Human Being, and Tha Carter IV.

While there is no release date for Devol at present, the prolific rapper is thought to be working on at least one more record, I Am Not A Human Being 2 and is also releasing a memoir documenting his time in prison, Gone Till November, on November 28.
