Dropping a new single, launching the new King Push EQT sneaker for Adidas, and being named president of Kanye West' record label, G.O.O.D. Music Inc., is all in a week's work for Pusha T.

ETonline caught up with the hip-hop artist, who didn't seem to be shocked by the announcement of his new position within the Def Jam imprint, but explains it was out of his hands.

"Kanye makes all those decisions," he shared at the EQT launch and album sneak peak event Thursday at New York City's Up&Down nightclub. "I feel like we have a similar vision at times and he just knows I am of the culture and have the best intentions for the team. I'm a team player."

Pusha T told Billboard that over the next five months, he'll be focused on "executing all the different avenues of music, art, culture and fashion as well."

Their shared vision also influenced the 38-year-old rapper's upcoming album, King Push, which he revealed Yeezus "inspired and produced."

"There's probably not a more genius or creative mind in the world [than Kanye]," Pusha T said.
