A Person of Interest is the third studio album by American hip hop artist DJ Paul, released on October 22, 2012. Paul states that the album, which is a mix of gangsta rap and crunk, is aimed at the core Three 6 Mafia fans. Unlike his previous albums, A Person of Interest also incorporates influences from dubstep and electronic dance music. Featured artists are long-time collaborators Lil Wyte, Project Pat and Gucci Mane as well as upcoming artist Locodunit. The album peaked at number 34 on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 11 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums.
In April 2012, Paul released a mixtape called 'For I Have Sinned' hosted by DJ Scream and DJ Black. The mixtape has been downloaded over 14 000 times at DatPiff. In October DJ Paul released a free album sampler for 'A Person of Interest' which includes 8 of the album's 26 tracks.
DJ Paul performed the single 'What I Look Like (W.I.L.L.)' live at the 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos. Between September and October Paul released several music videos for songs from the album on his YouTube channel - 'What I Look Like (W.I.L.L.)', 'Wit Tha Shit' and 'Trap Back Jumpin'. 'W.I.L.L.' was originally released without Gucci Mane's verse, but only the remix was included on the album.
Few days before the album release, DJ Paul was arrested in New York when a taser was found on him during a routine search. He was charged with misdemeanor and released shortly after.
A Person of Interest was released as a CD-DVD set. The bonus DVD includes a self-titled short movie, behind the scenes footage and music videos. The comedy-horror movie follows the story of DJ Paul, who has been stalked on Twitter and in real life by a mysterious woman. In an interview with Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, Paul stated the movie was initially planned as a set of music videos and skits to promote the album, but later the idea evolved into a complete movie.
