Daily Operation is a 1992 album by Gang Starr. The album represents the gritty sound of early 1990s Brooklyn hip-hop.
Guru rhymes on a variety of subjects, from the hypocrisy of the government, pro-Black rights and anti-prejudice, to his intellectual depth on "2 Deep," to his penchant for smoking marijuana on "Take Two and Pass," to anger and sadness on "Take it Personal," to the opposite sex in "Ex Girl to the Next Girl." DJ Premier and Guru are credited as the producers of every track. The track "I'm the Man" also features the debuts of Lil' Dap from Group Home and Jeru the Damaja, two artists who gained instant underground credibility because of the exposure.
Despite the album originally only being rewarded 3.5 mics in The Source, it was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Hip Hop Albums in 1998.
