Who taught Lil' Wayne how to use Photoshop? At first glance, the recently leaked Tha Carter III's album cover—depicting Wayne as a tatted toddler—is more disappointing than Knicks' ticket sales. But then, we thought, maybe Wayne is on to something. Looking back, KING-Mag.com scours other artists' eye-catching album art of the past that features childhood flicks. How does Weezy F. Baby as an actual baby measure up? -John Kennedy

The Notorious B.I.G. - Ready To Die
Although this classic album commences with the birth of B.I.G., tracks like "Gimme The Loot” and "Machine Gun Funk” proved Biggie's debut LP was anything but baby talk.

 Jill Scott - Beautifully Human, Words and Sounds Vol. 2
Retro looks, like pigtails and barrettes (and a missing front tooth), characterize young Jill on this chart-topping third album cover. Still, bearing the song "Cross My Mind,” this album signified J.S.'s artistic growth as she nabbed her first Grammy, for "Best Urban/Alternative Performance.”

Nas - Illmatic
Just as iconic as the rhymes and beats on this hip-hop masterpiece, Nas' kid mug already seems jaded. No pseudo tear tats or pinky rings necessary.

 Common - One Day It'll All Make Sense
On Common's first album as a father, the Chi-town lyricist shows off his eight-year-old self with Momma Sense at an airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 1980.

 Lil' Bow Wow - Beware Of Dog*
Read the sign and proceed with caution. This image was actually a present-day pic of Dogboy, when he let this leadoff solo album out the gate in 2000.
