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". "Picked the picture, great, we look, boom, boom, boom, it's good".
The "I Will Always Love You" singer was discovered dead face-down in a bathtub filled with water. "I'ma pay for that'".
The "Daytona" album is the first of five Kanye West-produced LPs that's supposed to hit next week, including his collaboration project with Kid Cudi and Nas' new release. Other than that, no, I'm not just bringing up political conversations.
With social media already throwing praise on the very short album (while simultaneously being upset about the cover's artwork), Pusha takes his talents to The Breakfast Club to gloat in victory.
Houston died in a Beverly Hills hotel in February 2012. "I'm really proud of what we put together", West tweeted on Tuesday.More news: FDA: Don't use teething products with benzocaine

"Ayo, check out, I just got finished listening to this Pusha T album".
ABC News has reached out to West, Pusha T and a representative for the Houston estate for comment, but has yet to hear back.
"I feel like the cover represents an organized chaos", the rapper told Entertainment Weekly on Thursday.
"The energy of the album is a bit chaotic, but it's all in place", he continued.
Daytona is coming out Friday.
The next album on West's docket is his own. "We've spent a year and a half digging for samples and writing", he wrote, "I really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive response that we've been receiving".
