We're less than a week away from hearing Lil Wayne's forthcoming album Tha Carter V, yet we're still in the dark regarding its appearance. Or do we?

NBA Basketball hero/villain Kobe Bryant tweeted "Carter V season begins #carterV" last night, along with the image you can see above.

As a genre rap has thrown up some pretty awful album covers, but this seems lazy to us, especially considering it's supposed to be his last album. I guess we'll find out on May 5th.
