Kanye West and Pusha T recently angered much of the social media community by posting a photo of the late Whitney Houston 's drug bath the cover art used for the latter's album, Daytona .
While the main critique comes from fans of the outdated megastar, her family has now broken their silence over the tasteless decision of the two rappers.
GUT Music's Head Boss Pusha T announced earlier this week before the release of the album, that they've paid a staggering $ 85,000 to license the 2006 image that includes drug paraphernalia and alcohol bottles The rappers claimed that Kanye had decided to change his cover art to the controversial eleventh hour painting, and it is understandable that this decision massively upset the Houston family
" Nobody in their right mind would do this album? " Houston's first cousin, Damon Elliott told Bossip. "Is that what the music business came up with?"
Elliott added that Pusha and Yes's disgusting and callous decision had forced her family to relive the traumatic event and only to prove they were taking advantage of the tragedy for personal gain.
"I can not describe how disgusted I am," he added.
Elliott, who is son of Dionne Warwick said his family had been completely surprised by West's decision to use the photo. In fact, he said his young daughter was the one who had made him aware that they were using her.

Elliott, who worked with West in the past and even helped him land one of his first feature spots on Keyshia Cole's album, questioned the psychic health of the rapper, as this is probably not the average. "I think Kanye has to be checked in somewhere, "he said. "Addiction and mental illness are real, and you experience it on the highest point, and I'm not here to beat it, I'm just telling the truth, I can not imagine that it would only do that for advertising. It's sick! "
