"How U Get a Record Deal?" is the lead single released from Big Daddy Kane's fifth studio album, Looks Like a Job For.... The song is notable for being one of the first singles to be produced by the popular production duo, the Trackmasters.

Though the song did not reach the crossover success that its follow-up, "Very Special", achieved, it became his sixth top ten hit on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart, peaking at number seven.
