Kanye West spends R1m Whitney Houston bathroom photo

Adjust Comment Print

KANYE WEST paid $85,000 (£63,640) to use a photograph of Whitney Houston's drug filled bathroom on Pusha T's latest album.

You can download Pusha T's new album off of iTunes here. Other than that, no, I'm not just bringing up political conversations. It's with that qualification that I feel good in saying that Pusha T would probably do a great job handling the Russian Federation investigation.

The photo was taken at Whitney's home in 2006 after an alleged drug and alcohol binge. "I mean, you know, I feel like everybody thought that 'Two Birds, One Stone, ' you know, that was Pusha and Cudi-aimed, so on and so forth, and that was fine, you know what I'm saying?" he said, adding, "I heard it, I felt like, OK, I can't have an argument about how real I am".

Pusha's drug-rap style, finessed in Clipse, is there on Daytona but his bars have gotten even tighter, floating on West's found melodies, samples, and beats.

The original image was published 12 years ago by the National Enquirer - six years before Whitney's death from accidental drowning aged 48 - but it's not clear if the star had to pay the publication, or her sister-in-law Tina.

'I love it, I actually do love it, ' he said. "It's here, it's ready.' 'No, this what people need to see to go with along with this music'".

Perhaps this is just an attempt to distance himself from Kanye's MAGA affiliations, but I think he genuinely wants to know!

"DAYTONA is the first project out of Wyoming". I'm really proud of what we put together. "I really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive response that we've been receiving".

With social media already throwing praise on the very short album (while simultaneously being upset about the cover's artwork), Pusha takes his talents to The Breakfast Club to gloat in victory.

Last month amid his epic Twitter spree the rapper revealed he wanted to use a photo of the doctor who operated on his late mother Donda shortly before she passed away in 2007, for the cover of his upcoming solo album. Another urged the rapper to "change the cover before you release the album" while a third wrote: "This is disgusting". The person who performed my moms final surgery.

Adams responded with an open letter, urging Kanye not to use the image.
