… Says Pusha T
Pusha T told Angie Martinez in an interview Wednesday that his original album art was canned at the last minute in favor of a photo West licensed for the obscene amount of money. Pusha said that Ye put his own cash down on it too since they’d already agreed on something else previously — telling Push, “This is what people need to see to go along with this music.”
“Daytona” drops Friday, but the artwork was released Thursday.
As for the final cover image … it’s a photo of the bathroom in Whitney’s home, taken in 2006 after an alleged drug binge. The room was littered with paraphernalia like a crack-smoking pipe, spoons, white powder, and booze — which can all be seen in the photo. Ya just gotta look closely.
