Kanye West Whitney

Kanye West reportedly paid $85,000 for the rights to use an image of Whitney Houston’s drug den as the cover art for rapper Pusha T’s upcoming album, Daytona.

In an interview with Angie Martinez, Pusha T revealed Kanye scrapped the artwork for Daytona at the last minute and replaced it with the famous photo of Whitney’s drug-strewn bathroom inside her mansion at the Country Club of the South gated community in suburban Johns Creek, Ga.

“1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID,” Pusha told Martinez. “[Kanye says] ‘Hey, yeah, I think that we should change the artwork. I like this other artwork.’ Now this other artwork is 85 grand. I said, ‘Hey, I don’t want to pay for that. And I wasn’t even going to ask you to pay for that. We picked what we picked. It’s here, it’s ready.'”

Pusha said Kanye offered to pay for the expensive image out of his own pocket, because Kanye believes the image is “what people need to see to go with this music.”

Pusha T Daytona

Kanye is a marketing genius, but Pusha was not impressed with the music producer’s vision for his album artwork.

“Ummm, it’s a picture,” Pusha explained. “It’s a picture. It’s just a picture that to license it worldwide is 85 grand. I’m not really too, too, too entrenched in the art world like that. I’m just going to let him do that thing. And he’s paying for it.”

The famous photo was taken by one of Bobby’s sisters in 2006. The family member claimed she sold the photo to the National Enquirer to serve as a wakeup call for Whitney.

    He’s a weirdo.

  • Ryan

    Disrespectful. But I don’t expect much from somebody who knowingly married a hooker. Dang, and he had some talent too.

  • teather

    Man, that’s just not cool, esp since he claimed to have his own addiction to opioids. If somebody paid to re-invent the pic of his mom on the surgery table, do you think he’d react? If that was the cover on a milkbox or something?? Ye, I’m am/was a fan and I’m really losing my patience for your Tomfoolery.

  • Ni Ni

    Pusha T should’ve told kanye no, unless he’s a nut like Kanye. I wouldn’t even want to be associated with kanye nowadays. It’s really sad if he has to stoop so low for some darn album sales. Just retire and go join your brother Pusha t.

  • Faux Gibbler

    What? It’s a crime scene photo.

  • KarmaBackAround

    So at first I was mad cause I assumed the pic was taken at the time of her drowning..but then when I read it was from 2006 I’m still like ehhhh a lil over the top BUT it came from a year where Whitney was heavily embattled in her addiction. I guess what I’m getting at is I’m curious to see how this album art and the music presented will go hand and hand..pusha last album n mixtape was dope so imma give it a shot on the strength of that

  • king shun

    john bathroom might be worse

  • deadellamore

    Konye needs a black woman in his life!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I wouldn’t give one fawk that’s somebody momma .. … and child …man listen… This type of lack of empathy is on whole nother level .. I don’t give a damn if Whitney did lines all damn day. ..

  • https://www.pinterest.com/gvahstyles/ gvah_styles_you

    ……addicts know addicts 100, Wendy told us Whitney was still lost and would die…and she did. These people know things that we are not privy to…..TRUST when I tell you that ALL of their handlers talk…..CONSTANTLY. #TRUSTme : )

  • https://www.pinterest.com/gvahstyles/ gvah_styles_you

    …no she moved to LA for a bit and BK was out of control there as well. She also denied that she was living there at that time….BUT she was.

  • https://www.pinterest.com/gvahstyles/ gvah_styles_you

    …..I think he hates himself.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I get it..but we all knew whitney lifestyle so the pic is not even shocking ..i dont think its appropriate by any means but i mean that’s Kanye for ya so somehow I’m not even surprised..but Pusha is dope so can’t punish him for it..

  • https://www.pinterest.com/gvahstyles/ gvah_styles_you

    ….he had one, and lost her…..hence forth Kanye today.

  • king shun

    go check out them prisons they filled with black men who had black women in their lives

  • Vonn

    Why can’t he create his own unique drug den for the cover art? I hope this isn’t true.

  • MissHarlem

    See now when I font some real true disrespectful shit y’all gonna be like chill. Welp true to form idgaf here it goes. Kanye ain’t no coming back to us for shit. Stay with your white fam. The lack of respect, empathy or any other adjective is beyond amazing to me. It’s high time us black women cut these coons off by the nuts and get serious. Pusha I’m disappointed that you allow someone else control of your work in any capacity without looking at it and approving it. That mentality is a follower not a leader. I expect fck shit from ye so no more energy from me. Pusha grow a set and Ye please stay on that side and stay there. Fck off and thanks ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    This pissed me smooth off when I read it today. Few reasons why…

    First of all her family (read PAT GREEDY ASS) had to agree to this.

    Second of all its okay for his ass to ruin HIS career. But didnt I TELL YALL that I felt sorry for his artists? I KNEW this shit was gonna happen. I think Pusha is all acting like he cool with it and this is a genius move…but lets be REAL HERE. And he even said it…this is his boss Kanye BRIGHT ASS IDEA. Teyana/Irritant. Listen up. Your ass is NEXT love.

    Lastly, its just in bad taste. His ass needs another intervention, some meds, and Jesus and a HUG.

    Im so pissed.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont blame Push for this. Im sure Kanye could have done this with or without his approval. Which is BEYOND fukked up to me. How DARE you put your brand of crazy off on your artists? And again, this is his boss for all intents and purposes. So Im sure he is doing this to just hush and be quiet. Pusha is old far as artists go and sad to say this might be his last “big album”. He doesnt and never has had a huge fan base. I just hate that album gonna have this shit associated with it.

  • FukkFolks2018

    This. Right the hell here.

  • sherri2016

    He should’ve just used his own coke den for free if not his I know he could’ve gotten those same images from Scott or kendall

  • MissHarlem

    And another thing don’t ask us black women for help. We are sick and tired of always being the one to carry the burden. Tough love you lost negros because at this time in the revolution you’re dead weight. Bye bye

  • FukkFolks2018

    I am in NC and my aunts and their families are in VA Beach/Chesapeake area and have been for over 30 years. When I SAY I love me some Clipse/Pusha? They were a whole ass movement. I feel real bad for him bc I know this is not his doing.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Oh hell naw. He bet not fix his crooked ass jaw to ask US for shit. Stupid ass.

  • Evillene

    The pic is disgusting but maybe that’s the point. Anyway, Whitney is not in the image. We need to be able to separate the life and legacy of Whitney from an image that doesn’t even depict her. It is not disrespect to her to use the picture. She was significantly more than a snapshot of addiction.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    When karma comes for Kanye…. it is actually already here. He finds art in other’s downfall and death, but he wants an apology from the doctor that gave his mother a medical procedure. He is so full of himself that it is beyond sickening. His day will come though. The fact that he even THOUGHT about doing this is beyond wrong. If Pusha goes through with exploiting this black legend, I have no words for him either. People always want to use controversy nowadays to sell. Forget talent, its all PR stunts, fake relationships, and controversial nonsense. The worst part…. as buyers, consumers, fans, or whatever you want to call it, we allow it. Did you hear that R. Kelly got a boost in his sales? You get my point now? WE, the people at home have made this acceptable whether directly or indirectly. But Kanye and his free thinking will come burning down one day, and he is in for a rude awakening. He better make better ‘Choices.’

  • MissHarlem

    I like Pusha met him a couple of times in VA which is why I’m disappointed. The fact that he wasn’t insistent about his own work is a problem to me. Follower mentality because he’s loyal to Ye. At the very least ask to see the damn cover before you talk about how you not paying 85 grand. Money was more of your concern vs your body of work and the art of his music. Knowing damn well ye been in the sunken place for years is enough to want to at least look at the work. Hate the lack of respect towards our women. Let Nas do a cover work with his dead mom on the table since he working with him too. Fonting that is crazy so it’s the same level of disrespect.

  • MissHarlem

    It’s coming that train is always on time. That’s how they do ?

  • SweetTEE

    Ion think he like it either.

    Is Pusha’s song about drug abuse, or the effect “Pushas” have on people (dunno, haven’t heard it)? If so, then I kinda get it. If not, Kanye ain’t ? for this…

    He really does hate blackwomen!! Why does he reference black women so much. We need an order of protection against him. Just like 50 cent, chris brown, the wayans, and jamie foxx. Go away.
    Kanye Wouldnt even dress his aunts up.

  • lovelygamour

    Lol. He cant create. He mixes. Recycles.

  • lovelygamour

    People say mr west is mentally ill. I think he medicate but I dont think this is an error. Kanye is doing what he wants to do. He married what he wanted. His clothes are what he wanted. And hating blackwomen is what he wants. Too bad bobbie k couldnt keep it together to protect her moms legacy.

  • jussaying

    Oh shoot what did the Wayans say about black women?

  • Jesse

    Why didn’t he just use a picture of his mom’s surgery table… ? Or, he can use this as a cover instead…

  • MythCalledLove

    Oh no doubt his ass is officially bat sh!t crazy. Succubus will make a man do something like this.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Wait, you didn’t read about the doctor apologizing after Kanye said he was gonna put the guy’s face on his cd cover? Okay, you can follow this blog to the story about Kanye wanting to use the doctor’s photo. A few days later, the doctor issued an open letter to Kanye.

  • Allihave2say

    Kanye why don’t you use the images of Ray J and Kim getting high together with him blowing smoke in her mouth and her smoking a genital bong? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d7587859521e3dcb7a2c6fb2cd4d0efaeb65e9f2f2d40be73ee4cd2fada484a1.jpg

  • gdukes

    Soooo what if Ray J new album had a pic of Kim K with his dick in her mouth??? I bet Koonye would sit his ass down then!! This man used to be a genius, now he is just plain retarded… there is a fine line…

  • Allihave2say

    I think that Kanye is attacking black women to make Kim feel more secure. They both feed each other’s narcissism which is why they belong together as well as Jay Z and Beyonce.

  • Allihave2say

    The fact that Kanye wants to ‘glorify” this down time in Whitney’s legacy is terrible. No one is letting this woman rest in peace. Now Kanye told the lie about having an Opioid addiction, why not use a pic of a bunch of pills he had around the house. In fact we should CPS to see if his kids are in danger. Kim is posting nude pics of them online. Dad is a mentally ill drug addict. Ae they safe?

  • LaksFan

    He is a fool and narcissist. What do we expect? It is going to get worse and he loves the fact we talk about him. It would be nice if he spent that money on youth community in chi town than this foolishness. I am glad he ain’t married to a black woman because we would shut his ass down for this mess. SMH

  • WhooCares

    I concur… D@mn shame smh

  • LaksFan

    we don’t need him, this man ain’t gonna change. It will just get worse.

  • LaksFan

    John Legend shouldn’t try to help him out anymore. Kanye doesn’t want help and he has wife and her family now. john is more stable than Kanye so he aint a simp

  • ebonics

    Honestly, most mainstream artists are like Pusha and have people controlling their image. They are told what to wear, what to rap about, and what kind of imagery they will use in their videos and performances. There is way more followers in the industry than people realize. Independent artists are the only ones that have control of their image. All these industry cats are puppets. I say fuck em all! Esp yeezy. He lost his mind years ago. Him marrying into a coven of witches solidified his craziness.

  • Miss Thang

    Pat didn’t own this pic. Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah Brown sold this pic to National enquirer many years ago.

  • Vonn

    Kanye could have given pusha- t a photo of Kanye when he was at the height of his opioid addiction.

  • Vonn

    Is that one of Amber’s outfits?

  • ebonics

    No malice is actually a christian rapper now (not retired) and hes pretty dope. I have more respect for no Malice than pusha at this point. He raps about more than the usual hoes, money, cars, and drugs. Pusha and Koonye need them some Jesus lol.

  • ebonics

    Ha! That would be hilarious! Ray should remix I want to piss on you (haters wanna hate, lovers wanna love.. ) and use that pic as promo! I’d be a fan for a day for that lmao.

  • GrapeCrush

    I don’t wish bad on Kanye but I really wish he would GO AWAY. He is so sick in the head. You can’t call this art. This is just downright disrespectful. I don’t see this ending well if he doesn’t get help and surround himself with the right people.

    She just spent several weeks in rehab.

  • YellowSauce

    as far as what Kanye thinks is appropriate is actually beginning to get scary … he has no threshold … this is evil and so disrespectful and so was what he did to Taylor what he said about Amber ( 30 showers ) the way he talked about his friends because they didn’t go along with his manipulation to befriend Kim his lack of compassion for the plight of the slaves and can you just imagine the things he doesn’t say out loud …. Mr West doesn’t need my support and he doesn’t have it .. When a person shows you who they are you have no choice but to believe them …

  • FukkFolks2018

    Well Harvey is gone.

  • RoniV

    You’re right about John being more stable, and he seems like a really good man who I like, but he’s still a simp. The fact that he felt the need to end his text to Kanye disagreeing about slavery being a choice with “you’re the greatest artist of our generation” clearly shows this.

  • Mints

    Very disrespectful…Plus all that and the album is 7 songs and only 21 minutes long. Thats disrespect supersized

  • KarmaBackAround

    So jus a question..whats the difference between pics of Bob Marley smoking a blunt all these years and this pic of Whitney’s bathroom? I get its her private space but it’s the same thing in people been making money off Bob n his drug usage for years..jus a thought..i understand ur angle but my thoughts are everywhere on this

  • Jennifer

    I bet he wouldn’t have pulled this stunt if Whitney was alive. And Pusha, it ain’t about your album. Its all about publicity for Kanye and his ego.

  • Reenaface

    And yet I wonder if white artists would use damaging images of their deceased legends as album art for their art covers on albums. What about a picture of the toilet that deceased Elvis was found sitting on? Would any of them be that bold and bold brazen to feature that?.
    I keep reminding myself that this is Kanye that is behind this so it’s much ado about nothing because his mind is gone. Wasn’t he just crying broke a couple years ago but he has 85k to blow on an image? Also, I would not have believed that he and the K coven were going on the game show Family Feud if I hadn’t seen the trailer for it. SMH!

    I don’t CARE what ANYBODY thinks, I know Kanye is “Mentally Gone” and Kim KarTRASHIAN is part of the situatuation. We as “Common Non-HOLLYWEiRD Folk” do not understand the REAL shyt that goes on. It’s sad that he is Mentally deteriorating and his Wife posses Selfies, Nude Photos or Make-Up all daym day. Yeah Couple made for EACH OTHER.

    Kim has nothing to do with Kanye behavior and she cannot change him. He was like that before he married Kim it coming out a lot more now.

  • Cats Gold

    That is who Kanye always been it has nothing to do with Kim a Black woman would never change him.

  • KJBibleOnSlaveShips

    the muthafukkka is a bonafide nut-case. blk men have lost all respect for our beautiful blk queens!!!!

  • Cats Gold

    Black men are responsible for their own choices and behavior. If you end up in prison you have only yourself to blame. No one forced you to commit a crime. I do not care what color the women he is with. We are responsible for our own lives and destiny no one else you cannot blame society, parents, or spouse!

  • Shira Harding-James

    I see your point

  • Allihave2say

    I don’t know the artist’s music cause I’m not into rap. I think its poor taste. There’s pic of Kim Kardashian smoking a shlong bong with Ray J and him blowing marijuana smoke into her mouth. Why doesn’t Kanye use that? It just seems insensitive to her legacy, her family and our people. We know Whitney fell from grace but how about some mercy for our own?

  • Quitedeliteful

    This is so distasteful. Of all the pictures in the world why this one? I see Kanye likes to push the envelope. The tackier the better, I guess…

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Bobby’s sister aint chit! And I’m not buying Pusha standing on the sidelines for HIS own project, he has to accept some responsibility as well.

  • Patricia

    exactly

  • Kimocha

    Mannn Kanye is very disrespectful for this… I’m convinced he’s just an IDIOT! Please help him Jesus!!! And I’m Always gonna be a Whitney fan no matter what! Flat out! Period! RIP Whitney….

  • Cap

    But if another rapper used a pic of his mom or her surgeons mugshot he would lose it so bad the whole world would feel it. When I saw this bs I knew he was behind it because he pulled the same stunt with his moms surgeon a couple of weeks ago

  • justsayin

    Since he’s into old pictures of celebrities…why didn’t he put Kim and RayJ on the Cover. Doing what they were doing ?

  • justsayin

    Agree.
