Did You Hear?

:: Kendrick Lamar leads the BET Hip-Hop Awards nominations. The kind of New York — he has the receipts! — scored a whopping 14 noms. Drake snared 13, while J. Cole got 10. [Rap-Up]

:: This is a terrible pun but I have to make it. Pusha T has pushed back his eagerly awaited solo debut My Name Is My Name until October. [Vibe]

:: MS MR show their versatility by performing a surprising great cover of the Arctic Monkeys‘ “Do I Wanna Know?” on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. They should put this on iTunes! [Pigeons & Planes]

:: Fancy a Caribbean cruise with Paramore and Tegan and Sara? Well that could become with Parahoy! — a four day floating music festival. Now where can I buy a ticket? [Billboard]

:: Grimes is a fashion plate, so it makes complete sense that she’s been hit up to co-host MTV Video Music Awards red carpet coverage. Have Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira been hit up for 2014? [NME]
