Lil Wayne's long-awaited Tha Carter V may finally see the light of day; the official Young Money Twitter shared the album's apparent artwork this Wednesday. The cover art is a red-filtered photo of a hand with five fingers up, and the word "WORLD" tattooed across the palm.


Tha Carter V's release has been delayed several times over the last four years amid legal and financial battles between Wayne and long time mentor and Cash Money label head Birdman. At one point, the album even reportedly fell into the hands of former hedge fund manager Martin Skhreli.

Earlier this summer, it was reported that Wayne and Birdman had finally settled their dispute in court and released Wayne from his Cash Money deal — signaling that the album's imminent release was near.

As of now, no official release date has been announced for Tha Carter V. Check the cover art below.
