Last year note from DJ Premier himself:

I judge my list based on dope beats, dope rhymes, scratchin and cutting, creativity, uniqueness, originality, and overall packaging of the products integrity. I dont care if you sold a million copies, that does not make it dope. I went through more than 60 LPs 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.
