Three 6 Mafia rapper DJ Paul is feeling the aftershock for carrying a taser around NYC last year ... TMZ has learned, he's been sentenced to community service following his weapon possession arrest.

As we reported, DJ Paul was stopped by NYPD officers back in October after leaving a restaurant with an open beer in his hand. According to police, Paul admitted he was carrying a taser at the time, so he was placed under arrest for misdemeanor possession of a weapon. He was also charged with carrying an open container.

Paul originally pled "not guilty" to the charges -- but today, the rapper struck a plea deal with prosecutors, agreeing to plead guilty to disorderly conduct instead. 

He was sentenced to 21 hours of community service.

Could be worse.

WTF? Did he actually get a criminal conviction because he was honest and told the cops he had a stun gun, which he thought was legal to carry? All this because he was holding an effin beer? Why didn't police arrest Kesha then? This just seems so wrong!

The prejudice in some of these comments is disturbing. How can anyone be so judgmental based on someone’s profession and/or looks? Why comment if you don’t know who he is?


DJ Paul has NO prior criminal record. He is someone who is respected and well liked by many. He is a prominent and wildly successful DJ, rapper and producer with his own recording label. He also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.


DJ Paul won the first place in the VH1 reality show competition, ‘Famous Food.’ He has his own fashion line with Juicy J as well as his own BBQ seasonings brand. Recently he became the official spokesman for a new legal version of ‘Sizzurp.’
