Which rap lyrics sparked the biggest buzz this year, Kendrick Lamar's all-star diss on Big Sean's "Control," Rick Ross' alleged date-rape references on Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." remix, or Lil Wayne's insensitive Emmett Till metaphor on Future's "Karate Chop" remix?

Yahoo Music's The Aftermath, the best music discussion on the 'net, has nominated the three songs for its EPMD "So Wat Cha Sayin'" Award.

HipHopDx Senior News Writer Andres Tardio joins co-hosts Billy Johnson Jr. and Soren Baker to explain why each artist is being recognized in this year-end recap.

Andres says Kendrick's lyrics that suggest that J. Cole, Drake and Wale step up their game "got a lot of rappers to take note of the pen and pad."

According to Soren, "there are so many levels of foulness" to Rick Ross' storyline about putting the drug molly into a woman's drink before taking her home.

Billy adds that Lil Wayne's use as a metaphor the racially motivated murder of a civil rights figure was "not the best choice."

Who do you think should get the EPMD "So Wat Cha Sayin'" Award?
