During a Sports Center interview, Lil Wayne released the cover art for ‘Tha Carter V.’ 

He follows the theme of the rest of his album art by using a photo of when he was a kid, this one featuring a picture of his mother. 

During the interview, Wayne said “This is perfect, I always go with a baby picture. I wanted to go with one with my mama this time…To have my mom on there is more than an accomplishment. It’s an achievement.” 

He said he didn’t let his mom know he’s using this photo and that she’s not a huge fan of the pic. 

The album release date is set for Oct. 28th.
