Kanye West apparently threw down $85k for a photo of Whitney Houston‘s drug-ridden bathroom that’ll now be the cover of Pusha T‘s new album, “Daytona.”

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 art … it’s a photo of Houston’s bathroom circa 2006 littered with drug paraphernalia. It’s kind of like an I Spy game … with a crack-smoking pipe, spoons, white powder, booze and mirrors.

It’s sure to get people talkin’ … and listening.
