"This album is all about Khayree, the man and his music. Ever since he produced Mac Dre's album "Young Black Brotha" and Ral Luv's "Get my money on" in 1993 on Strictly Buisness Records, the man has proved to be one of the greatest producers in rap and R&B together! Khayree is a genius. He's not just a producer, he's a MUSICIAN! Forget all those so called hottest producers, such as Dr. Dre or Lil' Jon. Those guys only make BEATS, catchy beats for the audiences. What Khayree does is create music! You can't get enough of his production skills, his music is so smooth and melodic. It has been that way ever since 1993, and it showed on all those Young Black Brotha Records classic albums by Ray Luv, Mac Mall, YOung Lay and Dubee. About this album - it was released in 1997 on Khayree's label (of course - YBB Records). The album has got the trademark Khayree production - his beats are just smooth, catchy, it's just music. The album is a mix of laid-back rap songs and some RnB as well. It's just plain perfect - There aren't too many big names on the album. The only big playas on the album are : Mac Dre, Dubee, Big Syke, Ray Luv and JT The Bigga Figga and Sleep Dank. The rest of the performers on the album are all rappers and singers from YBB Records, such as the group No Name Yet, The Confident One, the trully amazing Shima (that girl is SO TALENTED! How could a lame-a** singer like Ashanti blow up, when Shima is 10,000 times better that her. She's also so sweet), Anthony King and others. Everyone does a great job, including the young and unknown artist. Some of you don't know, but Khayree's also a capable singer, and he sings on many of the songs. As I said, most of the album is very laid-back with that RnB feel. However, on track no. 10, someone says to Khayree "I don't think you do gangsta sh** any more...). And then - Khayree drops one of the hardest and darkest beats in his career, and Big Syke just tears the track up with his vicious flows and lyrics. Best song is no. 7 , featuring one of Khayree's best beats EVER (and that says a lot) - the piano and the drum beat are just breathtaking - that track hits HARD!!!! This whole album is a make-you-feel good album, it flows perfectly from song to song, the rappers and singers all do a great job, while the center of attention is dedicated to the music, all produced by the genius Khayree. It's amazing to see his growth and his sound developing. The Blackalation (The World is Yours) is a true classic."

"This shows Khayree's gifts to the fullest. It lays out some tracks with that hard gangsta sound, and then switches it up with some soulful beats. It's mix of Rap as well as R & B make it a great album to listen to. It's got some uplifting songs as well as those ghetto tracks that make you feel the rapper while nodding your head. A must in any rap fans collection."
