(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.

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.
