Kanye West Spent $85000 On Infamous Whitney Houston Photo For Album Cover

Pusha-T Reveals 'Daytona' Tracklisting - Rap-Up

The rapper took a liking of a photograph of Whitney Houston's bathroom and deemed it be the flawless cover for the upcoming album of Pusha T, who also doubles as president of West's GOOD Music label. "[Initially], the artwork - it was pictures that we all agreed on".

Three of DAYTONA's seven tracks are credited exclusively to Kanye as producer; three also list Andrew Dawson, a mix engineer; one features a contribution from Mike Dean. It's because he paid $85,000 for a photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom. "I love it, I actually do love it (but) I absolutely did not want to pay for it".

"Daytona" was officially released on Friday (25.05.18), and Kanye voiced his pride in the work they've done on the LP.

Now, Drake has fired back, taking some not-so-subliminal shots at Pusha T as well as Kanye West. Listen to the track below. [West told him, ] 'No, this is what people need to see to go along with this music. Kanye called Pusha T after midnight and told him that the cover art should be a different photo. He's chosen his side of the fence, and he's comfortable maintaining the purity of Pusha T, rather than diluting his product for trends and accolades. "To all of my young niggas, I am your Ghost and your Rae/this is my Purple Tape, save it for Rainy Dayz", he spits on "The Games We Play".

While the teaser doesn't give away any details about the device, it isn't rocket science to predict what smartphone will launch. It has reportedly sent media invites for a launch event scheduled on June 6, where the Moto Z3 Play may get announced.

"1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID", Pusha told Martinez. "I shouldn't even be givin" you none of my time / "Cause you older than the ni**a you runnin" behind, " he says, again referencing Kanye. "The energy of the album is a bit chaotic, but it's all in place", he explained to Entertainment Weekly.

Just last month, singer Lorde got backlash after she shared a photo of a bathtub with the caption "And iiii will always love you".

Later on Thursday Kanye took to Twitter to unveil Pusha's album, and proudly showed off the artwork.
