Magnum Force is the second album from hip hop duo Heltah Skeltah. After the release of their acclaimed 1996 debut, Nocturnal, Rock and Ruck (who later became known as Sean Price) recorded an album titled For the People, with its crew, the Boot Camp Clik, in 1997. They followed up in 1998 with their second full-length, which received harsh reviews, and accusations of the duo toning down its content to receive more sales. The album is the first solo BCC album to feature no production work from Da Beatminerz and second overall after For the People. Despite the success of the single "I Ain't Havin' That," the album received mediocre sales, which led the duo to a temporary break up.
