Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Bobby Konders is back for his own Massive B with a big hardcore dancehall riddim in the style of his earlier dancehall scorchers 'March Out' and 'The Exit', the pounding 'World Domination'-riddim. Straight Jamaican dancehall without any clear US hip hop influences this is a killer riddim with its intriguing sped-up drumrolls, the perfect backing for Assassin with the superb - both regarding delivery and lyricism - titletrack "World Domination" followed by Massive B's own upcoming artist Majah Hype with his impressive tribute to fallen heroes "Rest In Peace" that is included in the live dancehall-mix "Rest In Peace (With Intro)" as well. Probably the biggest surprise across this riddim is the return of Germany's reggae superstar Gentleman to his earlier rougher hardcore dancehall style for the excellent "No Time To Play" as well as Beenie Man's first voicing of a Massive B riddim with the mighty "Me Nah Fraid Nobody".

Newcomer Assailant impresses with the entertaining "New Gal", clearly audible not just his name resembles that of Assassin, and Choppa Chop who has become a Massive B stalwart in recent years shows why that is the case with the very nice herb anthem "Ganja Me (Smoking)". Bobby Konders has always given new artists a chance to voice his riddims and G. Mac grabs it here with both hands with the hustling tune on which at times he sounds like Junior Reid in the chorus but as a rough and tuff DJ in the verses "Rich Again" before Massive B's own veteran Burro Banton graces the 'World Domination'-riddim with his immediately recognizable flow and "Energy". NYC Sting International and Massive B veteran Red Fox is in fine form on the last voicing over the riddim "Show Dem Boyz" rounding off a perfect selection of tunes over a massive (pun intended) hardcore dancehall 'World Domination'-selection.
