Khayree Shaheed is a music producer, from Vallejo, California. He is best known for producing for Bay Area rappers such as Mac Dre, Mac Mall, Ray Luv, and Young Lay. He produced most of Young Lay's album Black 'N Dangerous and Mac Mall's Illegal Business?, as well as many others. Some of the best known songs he produced include Young Lay's "All About My Fetti", which was used for the soundtrack to the movie New Jersey Drive, and also Mac Mall's "Ghetto Theme", whose music video was directed by Tupac Shakur. His production style is similar to the G-Funk that was commonly found in West Coast Rap in the mid 1990s, but usually without the use of samples. He released a solo album in 1997 titled The Blackalation (The World Is Yours). Some of his earliest productions were the tracks "Hooked" and "It's a Party" off of Vanilla Ice's 1990 album To the Extreme.

As of January 2010, he had reconnected with longtime Young Black Brotha Records labelmate Mac Mall, with whom he was in the studio working on new crestside material for a new album which would be off Mall's new label Thizz Or Die.
