XXL 3/5 stars (L)[3]

Consignment was met with generally mixed reviews from music critics. Jesse Fairfax of HipHopDX said "Overall, much of Consignment reflects the watered down state of a scene where artificial team ups are designed to tackle the risk of dedicated fandom not being enough for East Coast emcees to stay afloat. As Jadakiss readies Top 5 Dead Or Alive, he should keep in mind his natural ability to stand out from the bunch, as accessories aren't always necessary."[4] Ralph Bristout of XXL gave the mixtape an L, saying "Consignment‘s overflowing guest appearances, which features the likes of Young Jeezy, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ace Hood, Trae Tha Truth and more, gets uncomfortable after the first half of the tape, making what’s headlined as a Jadakiss mixtape sound more like a Jadakiss & Friends project. It becomes a bit of a burden at times, and getting the full Kiss experience becomes tougher. Considering his past mixtapes that featured hard-hitting production joints like “Champ Is Here,” “Ten Toes Down” or “Pay Attention”—the beats on Consignment aren’t consistently up to par with the potency of Jada’s bars or the weight of the names of his guests."[3]
