    Sorry but that cover is awful… they been getting progressively worse, and since Tha Carter III they been repeating that same basic Illmatic / Ready to Die kinda formula… no originality, just like Wayne’s music nowadays… still, I’m hoping he’s got a couple tricks up his sleeve, enough for a few decent verses / songs.

      That I am not a human being II was a good cover but the album was his worst for sure!

  • Austin

    Why does this cover look like something I’d see in the free user submitted section of Datpiff in 2007?

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

    • iseerashonal

      I think wayne copies tyler the creater a bit tho….look at how he dresses and acts

      • Chayce

        I thought Tyler the Creator said that Lil Wayne was one of his favorite rappers and a big influence

        Well that’s what I got from it lol

    • Schwappp

    • GreenBergs

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    • Dan Karlin

      When have you ever known Wayne to stand by his word? He and Birdman are infamous for just SAYING shit for publicity.

      • THE REAL mac DIESEL

        HOPE IT FALLS THROUGH THIS TIME!!!! FUCK THAT WACK NIGGA!!!!

        DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    • b r z a

      lol Mario Chalmers

  • Burt

    I have a feeling the album will sound like the cover. Terrible.

  • Mylo

    They need to airbrush his moms a little better….

    I think he should have used his first hot boy picture, when he had the mini fro.

    He not gone sell a mill the first week, if drake can’t do it. 450-650k which is great with the kind of deal cash money got…

    I’m wondering about nicki… Seems like she can’t catch that buzz like back in her Barbie days…. I really think that Grammy performance hurt her…

  • .Trillion.

    lol thats terrible

  • Dope

    Damn.. that’s awful.

    Carter III and IV did the baby look professionally, but this is just weak, reminds me of the first time I ever used photoshop.

  • yeah

    Very unimpressed. Goes to show even more that Tez Bryant is no kind of manager, along with single choice, useless pushbacks, and the direction he let wayne go after c3, I’m convinced even if Wayne came with the worst idea ever, he’s got (and had) too many yes men around him and that’s why the music and creativity has suffered.

    • Epul

      I’m still Trynna figure out who signed off on “Rebirth” and “I Am Not A Human Being” to be released

      • GetReal

        wayne is at a point where he can do whatever the fuck he wants, that simple, buy it or don’t, his core fan base aint going no where

  • RGeezy

    Got the fame & went lame.

  • http://140luxury.co.uk/ Rick Ross

    Album cover makes no sense whatsoever damn

  • Kip Thanatos

    Every rapper wants to have an ILLMATIC moment – it’s so fucking sad.

  • smoss44

    wayne be having the shittiest covers hands down. like why tat the child we know that’s you

  • el jim chapo guzman

    Carter V will be push back. Because ymcmb know for pushing lil wayne albums.

  • Dan Karlin

    This makes Kay Slay’s mixtape covers look professional.

    • bcro31

      Oh boy. Lol. I think he is picking his nose.

      • Dan Karlin

        Yeah, it’s how I figured out THAT person was Wayne.

        • bcro31

          Lol Wayne a trip.

  • bcro31

    Wow if you look real close he has a tat in the middle of his forehead.

    • NYC Shawty

      is you blind? you dont gotta look close at all to see those ridiculous face tattoos.

  • The Rock says

    Yall niggas really excited for this shit?

  • Everybody

    Without Drake in the mix Wayne is not gonna sell. Name one hit single on Tha Carter V without a Drake feature and “Krazy” is not a hit thus proving my point. Wayne is washed and has been for awhile. At this point Drake is carrying everybody in YM on his back.

    • poetmm .

      Lil Wayne has a big following he will sell, but his quality music after C3 is trash, I predict he will sell over 400,000 first week. Drake is not carrying everybody in YM on his back LIl Wayne still sells more than Drake.

    • Int’l J

      Say what you want about weezy but that man been selling records before Drake came aboard. Now I do think Drake introduced him to a new demographic but that dude been on for almost two decades!

      With that said he was third best out of the hotboys. but when that nigga was a yg he could spit! Period! Lil Wayne is the best child rapper of all time. Back in the get it how u live days youngin was a BEAST!

  • Everybody

    This “Wayne vs Drake” tour is not a coincidence Wayne needs to garner a buzz somehow. Think about it.

  • BLKSWY

    Is that Baby?

  • Justin TimberBAKED

    Really not as bad as everyone is making it out to be

    • Mylo

      Me real talk….. Just tapped on ur me and I seen the exact shit that mr gay talk said..

      Double tap this Stan name tell me ain’t saying the same as mr fake talk…

      Pussy!!!

      • GetReal

        you look like a clown in this situation

        • Mylo

          10/8/14

  • poetmm .

    That can’t be the cover shit look lame ass fuck LMAO I don’t have high hope for C5.

  • DJ NoSo

    DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER BUT…..MY NIGGA WTF IS THIS!

  • cannon

    Not feeling dusse that much but everything else really grew on me so im excited for the c5.
    Sounding better than c4 thats forsure.

  • Johnny Caruso

    Hi Young ppl let me borrow a min of your time to talk to you for a sec.because this is a hip hop site I know most of you are young ppl.im 33 yrs old grew up in South Baton Rouge am a white male with a beautiful African American wife.It heart breakens me what’s going on in Ferguson Missouri.The media will spin the story two ways to have you beleive this side or that.While the main problem and the same problem across America is a population in Ferguson 80% black and a 54 police unit with just 2 black police officers.And numerous black communities around the country being policed by predominately white officers who don’t even relate to the community most of the cops don’t even live in that town.What if in Mayberry.Wisscousin.Kentucky.etc where predominately white ppl stay what if we replace the officers there with black police then maybe white America will wit essential the strong hold of power they exood on black americans..My opinion to why you see so many young black men rioting and in rage.You can only live in a neighborhood being policed and swarm by “great whites” for so long before you start to rebel..What the real issue is lack communities need to stand up especially in the south and ask for a police force that reflect there community and who also have a CONNECTION with them.Sorry if I waisted time to talk about what’s really going on in the world other than talk about hip hop..#boosietakeoversep23rd

  • Chandler

    I think the covers dope. It’s got a really cool dark eerie type vibe. Reminds me of the covers I grew up to in the 90s like a three 6 mafia cover or something. I think it’s ill.

    • blackholesurfer

      not even close. i hope your being sarcastic.

    • Int’l J

      Not quite but i see what you talkin bout

  • THE REAL mac DIESEL

    I JUST WANNA TELL LIL WAYNE I WANNA SUCK HIS DICK AND SHOW HIM HOW GOOD FUCKIN’ A DUDE’S ASS CAN FEEL TOO!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • OKKK

    Hahahaha Austin’s comment had me weak!!!! I dig this cover tho, but like someone said that blue doesn’t go well with the red background, I have a feeling IF their is an alternate cover it will be dope too tho

  • mars

    I deserve an article too. Can you guys please thumb this comment up to help me. My music is too good for no recognition http://m.soundcloud.com/studio15pro/new-nigga-by-marz

  • J Meezi

    Did you guys at Rap Radar get paid to have Lil Wayne posts as your top 5 couple days in a row?? Everyone is talking about the shooting and death of Michael Brown. I can’t see how Lil Wayne would have the top 5… same thing as when 50 cent had the top 5 posts a month back..

    • iseerashonal

      Sit yo $5 ass down ‘fore i make change

  • iseerashonal

    Wayne need to pour up, light up, sniff, shoot up something cus he spittin that wack shit for the bitches n kiddies. Aint no grown man fuckin wit that

  • Dev DailyDev Haynes

    why did you guys take down the j cole record though?

  • J meezi

    PAYOLA!

  • Shamba Menelek

    I think fans trip off covers way too much. A lot of yall gotta be graphic designers mad that he chose that as the cover. Your not going to listen to the dam cover get a grip.

    And Im a Die Hard Nas Fan but Nas cant exclusively hold the rights to using a pic from his childhood forever.

    And where was the uproar when Kendrick dropp the MAAD city Artwork?

  • Miranda Garner

    Dorian is way better than this nigga.

  • cA

    I must say, this cover is trash. =|
