Pusha T said. "1am my phone rings, no caller ID, "yo", "hey yeah I think we should change the artwork and I like this other artwork" - now this other artwork is $85,000".

"'Cause he wasn't feeling it", he said, even after West had a hand in choosing the previous artwork.

Pusha T said he was happy with West's choice.

Pusha says he wasn't about to pay 85 grand for a new artwork when he already had one, but Ye insist that this artwork goes better with the music. "'I'mma pay for that'".

Pusha T has released his new album Daytona.

The dark photo will be the cover of his forthcoming album Daytona, which is set to be released tomorrow.

"I feel like the cover represents an organised chaos".
