The real thing, an image of Wayne as a child with his mother, was unveiled Thursday morning on “SportsCenter” by Weezy himself after a threshold of fans re-tweeted a call to action to reveal the cover. It was news to his mother.

“I didn’t tell her about the picture I was using for the album,” said Wayne. “I know personally she doesn’t really like that picture of herself.”

But Wayne, who regularly uses a baby picture of himself on his albums, said this release is special to him and including his mother was “more than an accomplishment, it was an achievement.”
