Pusha-T is set to deliver his long-awaited DAYTONA LP on Friday (May 25), revealing that all the work behind rolling out the Kanye West-produced effort was "all happening in real time".

There were also reactions to some of the album's disses; Pusha takes a few swipes at Drake for allegedly having a ghostwriter.

Kanye West has brought the storm of controversy that seems to follow him everywhere lately off his Twitter feed and onto an artist's album cover.

In a radio interview with Angie Martinez, Pusha confirmed that it was Kanye's idea to use the image for his album cover.

Kanye: i found a photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom, would make a good cover art. "I'm really proud of what we put together", West tweeted on Tuesday.

Overall this is definitely one of the better hip-hop albums to come out so far this year. So, there's nothing I even want to hear in regards to [Trump]-a point of view, anything.

The seven-track "DAYTONA" is just 21 minutes long, with Kanye lending his vocals on one track.

"I love it, I actually do love it", Pusha T said.

Representatives for Houston's estate did not immediately return a request for comment. "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".

King Push's album marks the first of a slew of releases from G.O.O.D.
