Published Apr 19, 2011Lil Wayne's long-awaited post-prison record Tha Carter IV is one of this year's most anticipated for rap fans, but it's really hard to predict when it will come out. We last reported that the record would drop on May 16, a release date that's now tentatively switched to June 14. But while that due date is still up in the air, we do know that the adorable image above is the record's official cover.
The image comes via Complex and would have seemed like a definite hoax had it not been for Wayne's baby-adorned cover for Tha Carter III. Besides, this looks like an iconic work of art compared to the butt-rock-aping atrocity that Lady Gaga chose for her new album cover.
Tha Carter IV does not have a tracklisting available just yet, but appearances from Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross are all rumoured to be featured. The album's lead single "6'7" is available below.
