Biography

DJ Paul is rapper and producer from Memphis, Tennessee. He is one half of the current Memphis-based rap group Three 6 Mafia. DJ Paul started out as a DJ, producer, and rapper in the early 90's. He was one-half of the duo The Serial Killaz, with his older half-brother Lord Infamous. They began putting out tapes in their neighborhood, school, and local shops. Portrait Of A Serial Killa was their first tape, released in 1992. Also, while putting out tapes with his brother, DJ Paul also put out numerous solo mixtapes.

DJ Paul built his rep as one of the best DJ-producers on the South side of Memphis, and was hearing how Juicy J was garnering buzz on the North side of Memphis. They met up and listened to each other's sound; noticing that they had a lot of similar interests, they decided to merge their sound and crew members to form the super-group The Backyard Posse. DJ Paul and Juicy J soon began producing dark, eerie tracks driven by bass-heavy beats and haunting sounds, and invited numerous Backyard Posse members to rap over the beats with them. They released the resulting tracks locally as Triple Six Mafia.

In 1994, Triple Six Mafia released the classic underground album Smoked Out Loced Out. The album was laden with much hardcore content, such as violence, heavy drug use, and sexually explicit lyrics. Triple Six Mafia received a great response from listeners of this tape. In 1995, the group changed its name to Three 6 Mafia and self-released its debut album, Mystic Stylez. The album became an underground success, and Three 6 Mafia, in turn, signed a distribution deal with Relativity for its Hypnotized Minds imprint. Throughout the late '90s, Juicy J and DJ Paul produced numerous albums a year for Hypnotize Minds and capitalized on the lucrative distribution deal. By the end of the decade, the two producers were at the helm of an empire.

Together with production partner Juicy J, DJ Paul played an important role in the South's rise to prominence within the once East- and West Coast-dominated rap industry. Behind the duo's leadership, Three 6 Mafia rose from an underground phenomenon in Memphis to a nationally recognized rap empire, spinning off numerous solo albums for the collective's many members in the mid- to late '90s. DJ Paul raps as a member of Three 6 Mafia and contributes rhymes to most of the albums he produces for such artists as Project Pat, Gangsta Boo, and Lord Infamous.
