Kanye West is currently recording in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He has been making behind the scenes moves for his label G.O.O.D. Music, and he also celebrated his fourth wedding anniversary with his wife, Kim Kardashian.
One of Kanye’s recent moves managed to upset Whitney Houston’s fans.
Latest reports claim that the rapper paid $85,000 for the infamous pic of Whitney’s crack-ridden bathroom from where she and her husband Bobby Brown used to live in Atlanta.

Kanye plans to use the photo as a cover for Virginias rapper Pusha T’s new EP called Daytona.
The news came out during a radio interview that Pusha T did with New York radio personality Angie Martinez.
Pusha explained how Kanye originally enlisted a photographer to handle the cover art, but he later had a change of heart.
‘The [original] artwork was pictures that we all agreed on,’ explains Pusha. ‘He picked this photographer, we took these pictures […] We picked the pictures. Great. We love it. Everything is good,’ Billboard reports.
Kanye offered a pricier alternative, and he convinced the G.O.O.D. Music teams to change the album cover, and he later paid $85,000 out of his own pocket to use a 2006 photo of Whitney Houston’s bathroom, according to Hip-Hop-N-More.
The pic shows drugs scattered all throughout the bathroom and spraypainted figures gracing the desecrated walls.

The bathroom photo originally ran in the National Enquirer.
Kanye also recently stated that he plans to use a photo of Dr. Jan Adams, the man who performed his mother’s plastic surgery. Dr. Donda West, Kanye’s mother, died back in 2007 following complications from the surgery Adams performed.
