During an interview with Angie Martinez (via outcome of Sound) on Wednesday night, Pusha T revealed West scrapped the artwork for Pusha's forthcoming album, "Daytona", and replaced it with a grim image of what he claims is the late singer's bathroom.
Kanye West and Pusha T attend the "MNIMN" listening event at Industria Superstudio on September 11, 2013 in NY.
"1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID".
"He changed my artwork last night at 1 am". "I'm really proud of what we put together". I said, 'Hey, I don't want to pay for that. "He picked this photographer, we took these pictures [.] We picked the pictures".
Kanye apparently replied 'No, this what people need to see to go with this music. So, there's nothing I even want to hear in regards to [Trump]-a point of view, anything. In a 2013 memoir titled Remembering Whitney, Houston's mom re-enacted the time she walked into her daughter's bathroom mortified by what she had just seen.
DAYTONA, the long-awaited new LP by Pusha T, boasts a mostly sinewy and understated sound that'll leave hip-hop heads in revelry.
The snap, which was taken in 2006 by a member of Houston's family, shows drug paraphernalia scattered about the place as the singer battled with addiction.
Shortly afterwards, Kanye tweeted again about how "proud" he is of the new album, that he spent nearly two years working on in Wyoming.
Steadfast on changing Pusha's album cover, West offered a pricier alternative.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Pusha T said, "I feel like the cover represents an organized chaos".
He went on to reveal that Kanye admitted to spending $85K to use the image.
Representatives for Houston's estate did not immediately return a request for comment.
The seven-track "DAYTONA" is just 21 minutes long, with Kanye lending his vocals on one track.
'I love it, I actually do love it, ' he said.
