Pusha T, 41, told syndicated radio personality Angie Martinez that West changed his album's cover art at the very last minute.

Pusha T added that West had to pay $85,000 to license the photo to be used on Daytona.

"1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID", Pusha told Martinez. 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. "I'm so sorry for offending anyone - I hadn't even put this together, I was just excited to take a bath". Imma pay for that.' I say, 'You my man! "I love it, I actually do love it (but) I absolutely did not want to pay for it". "He picked this photographer, we took these pictures [.] We picked the pictures".

So what was this artwork that Kanye thought "people need to see"?

"I feel like the cover represents an organised chaos".

DAYTONA, the long-awaited new LP by Pusha T, boasts a mostly sinewy and understated sound that'll leave hip-hop heads in revelry. "And this other artwork is 85 grand, '" he recalled. The picture is from 2006 and shows the late singer's bathroom.

The National Enquirer published the contentious image in 2006.

Houston, 48, died February 11, 2012, in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., where she was staying for the Grammy Awards. "Look at that cover, I'm sure whoever frequents that bathroom or area knew whatever they wanted to find and knew where it was".

"We've spent a year and a half digging for samples and writing", he continued. Fans will be hotly anticipating and dreading that track in equal measure, because it features fresh Kanye West verses in the wake of his recent far-right implosion. I really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive response that we've been receiving.' he wrote.
