Spin - 7/92, p.76Recommended - "...loose and jazzy...The Guru raps with unique skills, smoothly conversational couplets coupled with Brooklyn braggadocio and reality rhymes, riding the fence between subtlety and gangsterism..." Q Magazine (6/92, p.94) - 3 Stars - Good - "...arrestingly different hip hop grooves....the venom of Keith E's powerful raps lends credibility to his contention to be the hardcore rapper's hardcore rapper..." Rolling Stone (7/9/92, p.105) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...hypnotic and pensive--throbbing in a spare, intimate way....a remarkably good sequel [to 1990's STEP IN THE ARENA]....rises above most of the assembly-line, new-school hip-hop being churned out by most artists and labels..."

Few groups in hip-hop have remained as consistent as Gang Starr, much of whose product is regarded as having classic or near-classic status. DAILY OPERATION is another such collection. Gang Starr's MC Guru paired up with super-producer DJ Premier in the late '80s; heads began turning with their first smash, NO MORE MR. NICE GUY's "Manifest," in 1989.
DAILY OPERATION is an unparalleled blend of street-smart rhythm and carefully woven jazz samples. Guru is at the top of his game, sharing his social insights with a generous helping of street knowledge and wit. Tracks like "Much Too Much" and "Take It Personal" illustrate the duo's hit-making formula, as does "I'm the Man" a collaboration which introduces Gang Starr Foundation members Jeru The Damaja, and Li'l Dap of Group Home. DAILY OPERATION amply illustrates Gang Starr's importance in the history of hip-hop.
