DJ Premier drops in year end list via his blog, the list has some suprise entries on it, Albums from Watch The Throne to Game’s R.E.D album made the list. Below is DJ Premier’s criteria to how he picks his choices and you can view the list after the jump.

I judge my list based on dope beats, dope rhymes, scratchin’ and cutting, creativity, uniqueness, originality, and overall packaging of the product’s integrity. I don’t care if you sold a million copies, that does not make it dope. I went through more than 60 LP’s released in ’09 on major and indie labels over and over to get it as close as i possible could to being satisfied with the list so here it is along with the list.
