AHH Stray News: Lil Wayne Announces Album Of ‘Love Songs’ Titled “Devol”; Rocawear Partners With Yankees; A$AP Rocky Debut Dropping In July

(AllHipHop News) Despite having two new albums already in the cards for 2012, Lil Wayne recently revealed to Amanda Diva of MTV’s new show “Hip-Hop POV” that he had recorded a full album of “love songs” while he served time for a prison sentence in 2010 at Rikers Island. “I was recording an album at the same time called ‘Devol,’ spelled D-E-V-O-L, ’cause that’s ‘love’ spelled backwards. “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 with Wayne aired last night during the premier of “Hip-Hop POV” which will be a new weekly news and talk show on MTV. There is currently no release date for Devol however I Am Not A Human Being 2 will be out sometime this summer.

Earlier today (April 12) it was announced that Jay-Z’s clothing company, Rocawear, would be partnering up with the 27-time World Series Champion New York Yankees for a new sponsorship deal that will allow the brand to be promoted within the stadium for the 2012 season. Jameel Spencer, Executive V.P. of Marketing for Iconix Brand Group Inc. had the following to say about the new partnership: “Jay-Z has been a long-time fan of the Yankees, regularly attends games and has even included his favorite team in song lyrics, so this was a natural partnership. Rocawear, along with Jay-Z are very excited to be working with the Yankees for the 2012 season. We feel another championship in ’12!”

The people seem to just not be able to get enough of A$AP Rocky, so it’s only fitting that the Harlem native with the Houston swagger can’t wait to get his debut album as well as his crew’s compilation into fans hands sooner rather than later. Well it appears that Rocky’s debut, LongLiveA$AP, will be hitting store shelves in early July with the A$AP Mob project dropping two months earlier in May. The compilation will feature production from Clams Casino, Hit-Boy, Spaceghostpurrp and many more so be on the lookout for both projects in the coming months.

  • I think the last thing I need is another Lil Wayne album right now.  Jay stay hustlin.  True businessman.  I’m not feeling this ASAP kid but can’t knock him for trying to get money.

    Me and my fam recorded a song named evoL about no good women. Too much coincidence with Weezy. I recorded a song a while back and dude took part of my ish and twisted it a bit on one of those old squad mixtapes.  I’m not somebody who ever pursued a rap career. I only did it for the hood and because I’m nice. No BS. We have the song on disc and it pre dates this. It is on the disc just how it is spelled in this post. The last letter is capitalized.

    • GTFOH with that BS.

    Most of the so called “straight” men who hate Lil Wayne, be crying like Keith Sweat behind closed doors. Fellas, please stop with the fake thuggery, when y’all really just some undercover queens.

  • Mr. Coco Loso™

    if dudes actually payed for albums the man wouldnt have to make a love song album. sellin CD to niggas is like throiwing money away bc most men dont buy em now a days 

  • Wayne and his agenda has gotten to be too much. It’s one thing to not to believe.  It’s another to be blatant and nonchalant about the disseminating of his philosophies and lifestyle down to the lap dogs hanging on the the lyrics like a stray bone tossed… Paying for backwards ass messages and thought processes. Loved backwards, and pronounced as devil?  I can’t wait until Ice-T’s documentary airs.. A reality check is what the music world NEEDS

    Some BLACK WOMEN may have never went to college but that don’t mean their NOT seeing these BLACK MEN/CONS for who they are “USERS & BIG SELLOUTS”. I hear black women from ALL kinds of backgrounds say ((IF)) a BLACK MAN/CON makes it to a certain level he will reveal his TRUE LOVE was for the NON BLACK WOMAN. You will see MORE BLACK WOMEN discovering this TRUTH and the BLACK WOMEN will wait until a BLACK MAN is establish and see if it’s REAL LOVE or a BLACK MAN/CON using her for his own agenda. There will NEVER have to be a DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN 2 because NOW BLACK WOMEN are on to YOU (BLACK MAN/CON) TRUE agenda and will focus her time and money on building her future instead of investing ALL HER LOVE & TIME to a USER AND SELLOUT Called A BLACK MAN/CON. BLACK MEN are so MISLEAD/DECIEVED and don’t even realize their losing their BIGGEST SUPPORTS. BLACK RACE is on it’s way down if we keep moving in this direction.

        I say do what you think is BEST for you but make sure you are NOT being program (mind condition) by mainstream. WHITE MEN are 10 steps ahead of BLACK MEN (maybe 100 steps –NO offense ) WHITE MEN who control what you see (program YOU) condition you to think a certain way (especially NON BLACK is what is BETTER). WHITE MEN know if BLACK MAN EVER CONNECTS WITH A STRONG BLACK WOMAN they can change the world. BLACK PEOPLE make up about ONLY 13%. WHITE MEN have now put on applications to select if you are 2 or more races for a reason. That 13% BLACK People will be much less than you can ever imagine as time goes on. Which means BLACKS are LOSING NOT WINNING like the imagine (illusion they are showing you as BETTER). WHITE MEN will ONLY give a lot of promotion to BLACK MEN (mind condition) they can use for the ILLUSION.

        I know I am probably TO DEEP/DIFFERENT LEVEL for SOME Black People but when you go to college and take what WHITE MEN will show you (little as possible) you can see ALL this promotion and creating a certain perception is for a REASON. BLACK MEN NEED TO UNDERSTAND and look at what their doing to us because BLACK PEOPLE ARE NOT WINNING. PLEASE SEE BELOW

        1. NON BLACK WOMEN/MEN promoted daily as top of the line beauty (even on BLACK sites).

        2. BLACK WOMEN shown in a negative way (BLACK MEN too).

        3. RICH BLACK MEN that are with a NON BLACK WOMEN being promoted daily on a BLACK site

        4. BLACK WOMEN and BLACK MEN in a relationship shown as negative in some way.

        5. BLACK MEN and BLACK WOMEN hating on each other.

        This is for a REASON. (Guaranteed) PLEASE WAKE UP and see what is being done to YOU. YOU ARE NOT WINNING!
