Lil Wayne releases Tha Carter V album cover

Lil Wayne is in Bristol, Connecticut enjoying the perks of his celebrity. Wayne is hanging out on the ESPN campus and appearing on various ESPN programs, but he is using the platform to his advantage. First he announced the release date of the album.

From Miss Info:

A night after his “Drake vs. Lil’ Wayne” co-headlining tour stopped in Hartford, Connecticut, Lil’ Wayne made his way to ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut to appear on Sportscenter and First Take. Speaking with Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith on First Take, Weezy revealed the fifth installment of Tha Carter V will arrive on October 28.

He then went on to reveal the artwork. Sticking with the theme from Tha Carter III and Tha Carter IV albums, the cover features a young Lil Wayne. The first two albums in the series featured an adult Lil Wayne.

Lil Wayne is joined by his mother on the cover. It is the first time someone aside from Wayne has appeared on the cover of a “Tha Carter” album.
