Lil Wayne Talks 'Devol' Project: 'My Version of Love Songs'

March 15: Lil Wayne performs at Austin Music Hall in Texas.

"How to Love" rapper Lil Wayne has been working on a crash course.

In a new interview, the MC told MTV's "Hip Hop POV" that he recorded tracks for an album of love songs during his 2010 Rikers Island stint.

"I was… recording an album at the same time called 'Devol,' spelled D-E-V-O-L, 'cause that's 'love' spelled backwards," the MC told MTV in an online clip. "And it's my version of love songs. And what I mean by my version of love songs is they're not saying I love you."

The full interview will air at midnight tonight as part of the network's premiere episode of the new weekly talk show, which will also include an interview with Akon and an in-studio performance from 2 Chainz.
