Music career[edit] 1988–1992: Career beginnings[edit] In 1988, DJ Paul
DJ Paul
started his career as a DJ in Memphis club "380 Beale". At first he wanted to focus on DJing instead of rapping.[2] In 1989, he formed the duo The Serial Killaz, together with his older half-brother Lord Infamous.[3] Paul served as the producer, making beats, which Infamous would rap over.[2] The two did not have any equipment, so they used to rent local DJ Just Born's studio with the money their father gave them. Paul would play and scratch records on his mother's record player when she was not home. They released self-recorded tapes in their neighborhood, school, and local shops.[3] Their first tape, Portrait Of A Serial Killa, was released in 1992.[4] The following year, the duo released another tape called Come with Me 2 Hell.[5]

"Mixtapes, back in the day, was just a mix of people's favorite songs. Like if your uncle or whatever would take his favorite O'Jays songs, his favorite Staples Singers
Staples Singers
songs, and put them all on one tape, so when they have a party, they could play all of their favorite songs. ... Memphis took it a step further. ...that's what me, DJ Squeeky, and Juicy J
Juicy J
would do. We would put our own songs on our mixtapes. That's what people do today, but we were doing that back in '88."

eventually bought studio equipment, consisting of a keyboard, a turntable, and a four-track recorder. He started making mixtapes with popular songs and selling them at his high school. Later he started including songs of his affiliated rappers on the tapes as well, in order to promote them. Eventually, he began making mixtapes consisting only of original songs by himself and local artists. Paul claimed that Memphis DJs, such as himself, DJ Spanish Fly, DJ Squeeky and Juicy J
Juicy J
created the modern format of mixtapes by including their original songs, instead of making compilations of other artists' music.[2] DJ Paul
DJ Paul
also released a number of solo tapes called Underground Volume 1 to Volume 16. He rose to prominence as a DJ and producer on the south side of Memphis, and was introduced to fellow producer Juicy J, who was also garnering buzz on the north side of the city. Together with Lord Infamous, they formed the group The Backyard Posse.[6] DJ Paul and Juicy J
Juicy J
soon began producing tracks, described as "dark, eerie ... driven by bass-heavy beats and haunting sounds."[1] They changed their name to Triple Six Mafia, after a phrase Lord Infamous would use to refer to the group in their songs.[7] 1993–2005: Three 6 Mafia
