Kanye West just made an extravagant purchase.
According to Pusha T, West, 40, purchased the rights to a photo of Whitney Houston’s drug-ridden bathroom for $85,000.
Pusha told “The Angie Martinez Show” that the rapper, who is also his producer, insisted that Pusha use the photograph as the album artwork for his new album “Daytona”.
The photo was taken at Whitney’s home in 2006 after an alleged drug and alcohol binge. You can see the room covered in what looks like drug paraphernalia and bottles of alcohol.
He added that West scrapped their original cover idea last minute once he bought the license to use the pic. Pusha says West told him, “This is what people need to see to go along with this music.”
“Daytona” drops Friday, May 25.
