UPDATE: Turns out the pic isn’t the actual album cover of Carter V. According to Young Money CEO Cortez Bryant, Kobe’s tweet was nothing more than an image to “let [Lil Wayne] fans know that CarterV season is here.”
Lil Wayne has been a little cagey on the details of his upcoming album, but thanks to one L.A. Laker, fans have an idea of what the cover art for his next album, Carter V, looks like.
Yes, basketball superstar Kobe Bryant revealed the cover for Wayne’s upcoming album in a tweet yesterday (April 28) that simply stated, “Carter V season begins,” along with a red and white photo of the prospective cover, which features the words Cash Money Records and Young Money at the bottom.

Wayne has managed to keep pretty quiet about his next release, letting others do the work for him. But he did confirm Kobe’s message by retweeting it.
The album is scheduled to be released May 5, though that has not been officially announced, and will reportedly be his last. Though he did tell MTV that he’d reconsider his retirement. “25 to 35 million would get me to do another solo album after this,” he said.
“If I was a Clippers fan, I wouldn’t be one anymore,” Wayne said in a video. “It’s that simple.”
