The playlist of the first Live From HQ show in 2010 is made of best songs of 2009, selected by Premier himself. We already posted his selection of the best albums in the past year, and here’s what he has to say about that 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….
