As DJ Premier has been doing since a few years, here’s his top 25 Hip-Hop albums of 2010. If you are wondering about the criteria, here’s what he said at the time of doing the 2009 list:

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.

25. Ice Cube – I Am The West
24. Bun B – Trill OG

    I bet if he had made a beat for Em on Recovery, it would have been number 1 in his list…
