You know that thing you do with your lips where you stick them out and exhale so they flap quickly–usually while rolling your eyes? That is what I am doing right now becase Lil Wayne recently shared some deets about his next album and no, it doesn’t look like things will be getting any better.
This time, Weezy will be releasing an album of love songs because when I think of Lil Wayne, I naturally think of a mature, respectful approach to love and relationships.
Listen, I’m all for artists trying new things but Lil Wayne is already on some thin ice after the auditory trainwreck that was I Am Not A Human Being II. So excuse me if I’m not putting the fullest of trust in his creative compass.
The album will be called Devol, which is “loved” spelled backwards.
Excuse me while I pick by eyeballs up off the floor because they just rolled clean out of my face. That is literally the least creative thing I have ever heard. IS HE EVEN TRYING? Is Weezy just trolling us because Jesus hell that is terrible.
He goes on to explain:
“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,”
Hmmm ok. Now, of course there are a lot of ways to say I love you without actually using the words, but is anyone else find this to be an eerily cryptic, slightly worrisome and fairly illogical explanation? No? Just me?
Let’s be real, Drake is pretty much the only rapper who can get away with this shit right now. Not just because of his wispy, sensitive nature, but because he seriously buys into it. He lives it. Unless Weezy’s album of love songs are to his skateboard and weed, I’m not buying it. Hey, that’s actually an ok idea. Lil Tunechi, call me for a collabo.
