Earlier this week, rumors hit the ’net that Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated album, Tha Carter IV, was pushed back from May 16 until June. has learned exclusively, that the claims are indeed true.

Young Money president, Mack Maine, informed XXL that Weezy’s follow up to 2008’s multi-platinum selling Carter III LP will be hitting shelves on June 21. We also confirmed that the graduation photo of a pre-teenage Wayne, sporting his signature facial tattoos that leaked online earlier this week, as well, is the official cover art to the disc.

Weezy F. Baby is currently on his I Am Still Music tour with label mate Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross (who appears in the video to his new single “If I Die Today [John]“), and Travis Barker. The crew’s next stop is at Los Angeles, CA’s Staples Center on Friday, April 22. —Jesse Gissen

    It was on Raekwon’s Cuban Linx album, just to keep things straight.
    And that album is UGLY and played the fuck out.

    But in fairness the carter 3 was just as stupid looking and just as much of a bite, and it did fine.
    So do whatever you want wayne, who cares, you’re rich!
