"...Big Daddy Kane has returned to his roots: stripped-down beats, easy on the samples, heavy on the bare-knuckles attitude..." - Rating: B
The Source - 7/93, p.683.5 Stars
- Very Good - "...still has the clever lyrics, full of metaphors and punch-lines, and the smoothed-out but animated delivery. The music maintains with Old School beats, bluesy basslines, and striking piano and guitar riffs....he's back to his original game plan..."

After the stylistic missteps and weak self-productions of Prince of Darkness, Big Daddy Kane returned to the rhyme with 1993's excellent Looks Like a Job For..., an album that updated his sound for the early '90s but left plenty of room for the greatest to freestyle. And led by a pair of TrakMasterz productions, the title track and the casually, hilariously dismissive "How U Get a Record Deal?," it started off incredibly strong. Nearly all of these were the usual battle raps, but Kane also had much to say with tracks like "Rest in Peace" and "Brother Man, Brother Man," the latter featuring him smoothly trading rhymes with his prot?g?, Lil' Daddy Shane. ~ John Bush
