Daily Operation is the third album by American hip hop duo Gang Starr, released in 1992 on Chrysalis Records. Produced by the duo, the album represents the gritty sound of early 1990s East Coast hip hop. Guru's subject matter includes the hypocrisy of the government, pro-Black rights and anti-prejudice, to his intellectual depth on "2 Deep", his penchant for smoking marijuana on "Take Two and Pass", anger and sadness on "Take It Personal", and love on "Ex Girl to Next Girl". The song "I'm the Man" also features the debuts of Lil' Dap from Group Home and Jeru the Damaja, two musicians who gained instant underground credibility because of the exposure.

Although the album was originally rated only 3.5 mics in The Source, it was selected as one of the magazine's 100 Best Albums in 1998.
