What is the net worth of DJ Paul?

DJ Paul is a DJ, rapper, and record producer with a $10 million net worth. DJ Paul is a founding member of the hip hop group Three 6 Mafia, for which he is best known. With the group, he recorded popular albums such as “When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1,” “Da Unbreakables,” and “Most Known Unknown” and received an Academy Award for the song “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” In addition, Paul has recorded solo albums and composed film scores.

Early Life and Beginnings of Career

DJ Paul, whose full name is Paul Duane Beauregard, was born in Memphis, Tennessee on January 12, 1977. At the age of 11, he began his career as a DJ at the neighborhood bar 380 Beale. In 1989, Paul and his brother Ricky T. Dunigan, also known by his stage moniker Lord Infamous, founded the duo the Serial Killaz. Due to a lack of equipment, the couple borrowed the DJ Just Born’s studio. The Serial Killaz went on to release self-recorded cassettes throughout their neighborhood and school, beginning in 1992 with “Portrait of a Serial Killa.” This was followed by the publication of a self-titled cassette and two portions of “Come with Me 2 Hell.”

Paul eventually acquired studio equipment and began producing and selling mixtapes at his high school. In addition, he issued a number of solo cassettes. Paul went on to earn notoriety as a DJ and producer in Memphis, where he met Juicy J, another rising star producer.

Three Six Mob

Paul created the Backyard Posse with Juicy J and Lord Infamous, which would soon become the hip hop group Triple Six Mafia. In 1994, Koopsta Knicca joined the group, and they released the album “Smoked Out Loced Out.” Following the addition of two new members, Crunchy Black and Gangsta Boo, the group’s name was changed to Three 6 Mafia. They released their debut studio album, “Mystic Stylez,” in 1995. The album’s success led to the band’s signing with Relativity Records. “When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1,” which debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 in 2000, was Three 6 Mafia’s mainstream breakthrough after two albums with varying degrees of success. Both “Da Unbreakables” and “Most Known Unknown” debuted in the top five on the Billboard 200 in 2003 and 2005, respectively. Additionally, Three 6 Mafia composed the scores for the films “Choices” and “Choices II: The Setup.”

In 2006, Three 6 Mafia won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp,” composed for the film “Hustle & Flow.” This is one of the group’s most significant accomplishments. Crunchy Black subsequently quit the group, leaving just Paul and Juicy J. In 2008, they subsequently published the album “Last 2 Walk.”

Individual Albums and Mixtapes

The bulk of the tracks on Paul’s 2002 solo debut album “Underground Volume 16: For da Summa” were initially featured on his 1994 mixtape “Underground Volume 16: 4 Da Summa of ’94.” Later, in 2009, Paul released “The Weigh In,” his first mixtape since the early 1990s. A few months later, he released his second solo album, “Scale-A-Thon,” under his newly established label Scale-A-Thon Entertainment. Following the release of “Too Kill Again,” Paul worked with rapper Ya Boy and producer Lil Lody on the mixtape “Pray For Forgiveness.”

Paul’s third solo album, “A Person of Interest,” was published in 2012; it featured a bonus DVD, a short film, music videos, and behind-the-scenes material. The albums “Volume 16: The Original Masters,” “Master of Evil,” “YOTS: Year of the Six,” “Underground Volume 17: For da Summa,” and “Power, Pleasure, and Painful Things” followed.

S.I.M. and the 6ix Mafia

In early 2013, Paul opted to focus on his DJ career and formed the DJ combo S.I.M. (Sex is Mandatory). Later in the year, he regrouped with Crunchy Black, Gangsta Boo, and Koopsta Knicca to create the group Da Mafia 6ix. In November, they released their debut mixtape, titled “6ix Commandments.” The mixtape included Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Lil Wyte, and La Chat, among others.

Other Media and Commercial Activities

Paul and Juicy J appeared in the 2007 reality show “Adventures in Hollywood,” which chronicled Three 6 Mafia’s journey to Hollywood following their Oscar triumph. A few years later, Paul took first place in the cooking competition series “Famous Food.” Among his previous television appearances, he and his fiancee Majda Baltic featured in an episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap” in 2014. He also appeared in the films “Jackass Two,” “Jackass Two and a Half,” and “Jackass Forever.”

Paul and Juicy J launched their own fashion collection in 2007 under the name Dangerus/Skandulus, which includes caps, T-shirts, stickers, and other accessories. In 2012, Paul introduced a line of barbecue spices, and in 2013, he became the official spokesman for a new, legal form of the recreational drug beverage lean.

Personal Life

Lord Infamous, Paul’s brother and Three 6 Mafia associate, died of a heart attack in December 2013, causing Paul to suffer a significant loss.

Paul was briefly engaged to Majda Baltic, whom he met in the Salt Lake City, Oklahoma, airport. After starring on the reality television program “Celebrity Wife Swap,” the couple called off their engagement.
