Who is DJ Paul?
Duane Beauregard, better known by his stage name DJ Paul (born January 12, 1977), is an American DJ, record producer, and rapper from Memphis, Tennessee. He was born into a family of musicians. A founding member of the hip hop group Three 6 Mafia, he is also the brother of Lord Infamous, who died in a car accident. In addition, he is a part-owner of the FaZe Clan.
Early Life and Career Journey Of DJ Paul
DJ Paul’s real name is Paul Duane Beauregard, and he was born on January 12, 1977, in Memphis, Tennessee, to a family of musicians. He began his professional career as a DJ at the age of eleven, working at the local club 380 Beale. In 1989, Paul joined forces with his brother Ricky T. Dunigan, better known by his stage name Lord Infamous, to form the duo the Serial Killaz. Because they lacked the necessary equipment, the pair rented out the studio of local DJ Just Born. Their first self-produced tape, “Portrait of a Serial Killa,” was released in 1992, and the Serial Killaz went on to release several more in their neighborhood and school. This was followed by the release of two parts of “Come with Me 2 Hell” and a self-titled cassette by the duo.
Paul eventually acquired studio equipment and began creating mixtapes, which he sold at his high school’s record store to make ends meet. In addition, he released a number of solo cassettes. Paul went on to become a well-known DJ and producer in Memphis, where he was introduced to fellow up-and-coming star producer Juicy J, who became a friend.

Three friends, Juicy J and Lord Infamous came together to form the Backyard Posse, which would eventually grow into the hip hop group Triple Six Mafia. Following the addition of Koopsta Knicca to the group in 1994, the album “Smoked Out Located Out” was released. After acquiring two additional members, Crunchy Black and Gangsta Boo, the group changed its name to Three 6 Mafia. Their debut studio album, “Mystic Stylez,” was released in 1995 and was a critical and commercial success, leading to the group’s signing with Relativity Records the following year. Having released two albums that were only moderately successful, Three 6 Mafia achieved their commercial breakthrough in 2000 with “When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1,” which debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 chart. “Da Unbreakables” (in 2003) and “Most Known Unknown” (in 2005), both of which charted in the top five of the Billboard 200, brought him even more recognition. Three 6 Mafia was also responsible for the soundtracks for the films “Choices” and “Choices II: The Setup,” among other projects.
“It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp,” written for the film “Hustle & Flow,” was one of the Three 6 Mafia’s most notable accomplishments in 2006 when they were awarded the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Crunchy Black left the group as a result of this, leaving only Paul and Juicy J remaining. In 2008, they released the album “Last 2 Walk,” which was followed by a tour.
