HipHopDX 3/5 stars[3]

Upon its release The Piece Maker 3: Return of the 50 MC's was met with mixed reviews from music critics. Bruce Smith of HipHopDX gave the album three out of five stars, saying "While Piecemaker Vol. 3 has its highlights, it’s not without its flaws. At times, the production of the Beatnuts (which covers most of the project) can feel dated, as do some of the featured emcees. Piecemaker Vol. 3: Return of the 50 MCs is a mixtape in its truest form, for better or worse. While some will champion this as “true Hip Hop,” the abundance of filler can’t be ignored.[3]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted at number 175 on the Billboard 200 chart,[4] with first-week sales of 2,400 copies in the United States.[5]
