Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter V’ Features Another Awesome Baby Photo, Gets a Release Date

Any release date from Weezy F. Baby is to be treated with a medium-high degree of skepticism, but Tha Carter V is now set for October 28. Halloween-time seems right for Lil Wayne, right? Anyway: The record’s the third Carter to feature a mini-Wayne on the cover, and this time Mama Carter’s there, too. “I’m sorry, moms,” Wayne said on SportsCenter. “I didn’t tell her about the picture that I was using for the album cover. I don’t think she’s going to be upset, but I know personally that she don’t really like that picture of herself ’cause she’s not looking in the camera.” Wayne says it’s “perfect,” and you and I both agree.
