Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne Releasing Love Songs

Lil 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.

He told MTV: ''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.''

However, Wayne warned the tracks are not likely to be traditional ballads, but his own take on the love theme.

He added: ''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.
