Veteran New York producer Chylow “Chyskillz” Parker recently passed away from a heart attack, according to his friends and family. Most known for his production with Onyx, the accomplished Queens native made a name for himself in the early ’90s with hits like “Throw Ya Gunz” and “Slam” (with Jam Master Jay). Chyskillz also worked with seminal rap acts like LL Cool J and Public Enemy.
“Just got sad news that Producer “Chyskillz” passed away from a Heart Attack.

Man this is some sad shit to hear, I friended him a few years ago on facebook, even chatted with him about what he been up to and was saying how he was just getting use to how the industry changed, learning working DAW into his set-up and getting things correct with his royalties, and making new music for a bunch of new artists and his close people like Onyx.
Now none of that is coming into fruition, damn so sad to hear another hip-hop producer/artist is gone.
He was another understudy of Jam Master Jay but now he will get to chill with his homie, rest in power Chylow Parker.
