Looks Like a Job For... is the fifth album by emcee Big Daddy Kane, released in 1993 on Cold Chillin' Records.

After the commercial failure of his 1991 album Prince of Darkness, Kane was able to regain his past acclaim, with an album that was considered as a return to his past greatness. Unlike his past albums, Kane involved a large number of outside producers for the project, including future production stars the Trackmasters, Easy Mo Bee, and Large Professor.

Looks Like a Job For... featured Kane's first Top 40 Billboard Hot 100 hit, "Very Special," as well as the underground hip-hop hit "How U Get a Record Deal?" and a remix of the track "’Nuff Respect," which was originally from the soundtrack of the film Juice.

Album guests include Kane's brother Little Daddy Shane, Kane's backup dancers Scoob & Scrap Lover, and Spinderella of Salt-N-Pepa.
