American music producer Dre Skull has bought a $7 Million mansion in an upscale Los Angeles community.

The Dancehall producer bought the home in the upscale community of Los Feliz in Los Angeles, California.

Dre Skull is best known locally for his work with Dancehall superstars Vybz Kartel and Popcaan. He is responsible for Vybz Kartel’s Kingston City and Popcaan’s Where We Come From albums.

According to Variety, the beat-maker recently bought the 3,879 square foot house on a “lovely Mediterranean compound.” The house consists of four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and a guesthouse.

The purchase has been described as one of 2020’s biggest deals in the historic Los Feliz neighborhood. The house, which was originally built in 1928, was recently restored and extensively upgraded by the sellers.

Some of Dre Skull’s regular collaborators include Vybz Kartel, Popcaan, Konshens, Spice and Mavado.

According to Dre Skull, he first discovered Jamaican music through his collection of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry records. However, it was his trip to Jamaica in 2010, that cemented his love for Dancehall culture.

The producer has also produced tracks for mainstream rappers such as Drake and Snoop Dogg.

In addition to his musical success, Dre Skull is also a “wealthy heir to an East Coast-based insurance fortune”. His father is successful Ohio businessman Barry J. Hershey.
