Dart Adams presents Top 100 Instrumental & Sub Hip Hop LP's Of 2009

Here's my final list of the top 100 instrumental & remix LP's of 2009 according to me (there will be Dubstep). Please keep in mind that a fair amount of this music is completely foreign (ha!) to American Hip Hop heads (Thank you internet & friends from overseas).

Since the overwhelming majority of these artists or groups are unfamiliar to you I'll provide a few website links afterwards where you can become acquainted with most of them and their work. Enough words, God knows people don't wanna read all that shit before a long ass list (that's a bunch of words, ironically enough). Enjoy (or don't):
