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.
