So Pusha T's 'brilliant' album now means we've forgiven Kanye?

Kanye West has reportedly paid £64,000 so he can put a photo of Whitney Houston's drug-den bathroom on the cover of Pusha T's new album.

In an interview with The Angie Martinez Show, Pusha-T shared that the photograph was a last-minute change to the album. And as for the latter, Pusha has clearly seen some shit in his life so I don't think a 71-year-old pile of cholesterol and skin is gonna get to him.

'We picked the pictures.

"1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID".

Pusha explained, 'Now this other artwork is 85 grand. And I like this other artwork. I'm gonna pay for that.' I say, 'You my man!

Kanye apparently replied 'No, this what people need to see to go with this music.

Licensing the image cost $85,000, a fee Pusha didn't want to pay, so Kanye paid for it instead.

West, producer of the album, took to Twitter to reveal the cover art, a photo taken six years before Houston's death.

The album cover image depicts Houston's bathroom in her Atlanta home. The energy of the album is a bit chaotic, but it's all in place.

Prescription drugs were found near her body, and bottles of alcohol were found in the adjacent room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"Daytona" was officially released on Friday (25.05.18), and Kanye voiced his pride in the work they've done on the LP. I'm not really too, too, too entrenched in the art world like that. Music opens up about why he hasn't dropped any new material since 2015, feeling a ways about Lil Wayne's current situation and his thoughts about Kanye West's admiration for Donald Trump.

The release is not without controversy: The album cover is a 2006 photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom that once was on the cover of The National Enquirer, which West allegedly bought for $85,000.
