Though it had input from PMD, the album found nowhere near the amount of success that EPMD and members of their Hit Squad had attained. Magnum Opus only made it to 95 on the Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and its two singles, "I Can't Hear You" and "What", failed to appear on any Billboard charts. After the album's failure, Top Quality was dropped from the label.
