R.I.P Big Black From Rob And Big

Christopher "Big Black" Boykin (January 13, 1972 – May 9, 2017) was an American entertainer and musician best known for his role on MTV's Rob & Big, which followed him and his co-star, skateboarder Rob Dyrdek.

Boykin served in the U.S. Navy.[citation needed]

In a skit for DC Shoes, Dyrdek hired Boykin to be a bodyguard in order to protect him from security guards. In 2004, they played their characters again in The DC Video: Deluxe Edition DVD.[1]

From November 2006 to April 2008, he and Dyrdek starred in the reality television series Rob & Big on MTV. Boykin set two Guinness world records for peeling and eating three bananas in 1 minute and for the most powdered doughnuts eaten in less than 3 minutes (5 donuts in 2 minutes, 45 seconds).

    This Legend Will Be Missed

    Christopher Boykin was one of my favorite celebs of all time. When I was younger I was seriously into skateboarding and watched Rob and Big religiously. Rob Dyrdek and Big made were the oddest celeb duos going on whacky adventures. Christopher was originally hired as Rob's personal security guard but he was much more then that. He was one of if no Rob's best friends and he made the show that much more appealing for the viewers. Rob being a small white pro skateboarder and Big a huge black security guard made the two a hilarious duo.
    Big Black will be missed!! Check out some of the best clips from his shows.
