Pusha-T's 'DAYTONA' Cover Art Features Whitney Houston's Drug-Littered Bathroom
Kanye West reportedly offered to pay $85,000 to license the image
Published May 24, 2018Pusha-T is set to deliver his long-awaited DAYTONA LP on Friday (May 25), revealing that all the work behind rolling out the Kanye West-produced effort was "all happening in real time." Now, the rapper has unveiled the album's artwork, which features a tabloid photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom.
In an interview with The Angie Martinez Show, Pusha revealed that West called him yesterday (May 23) to tell him "he wasn't feeling" DAYTONA's original artwork. Instead, West wanted to go with the photo of Houston's bathroom, telling Pusha that "this is what people need to see to go along with this music."
The photo of Houston's bathroom, taken in 2006 at her home in Atlanta, shows drug paraphernalia, bottles and cans of alcohol and spoons covered in white powder littered about the countertop.
DAYTONA was described by Pusha as an effort "for my family…high taste level, luxury, drug raps fans." You can see his full interview with Martinez below.
