Although the album itself didn't see much success on the charts, it is still considered a bona-fide hip-hop classic. Whodini featured a few hit singles. "Magic's Wand" reached #45 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart and "The Haunted House of Rock" reached #55 on that same chart.
The hit single "Magic's Wand" was featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City's in-game radio station Wildstyle Pirate Radio in 2002.
