RIP to Christopher Boykin AKA Big Black from Rob & Big

TMZChristopher ‘Big Black’ Boykin, who was the other half of Rob Dyrdek’s hit MTV show “Rob & Big” — has died … TMZ has learned. His rep tells us Chris died Tuesday morning. No official cause of death yet, but multiple people connected to Chris tell us they believe it was a heart attack. He was Rob’s best friend and bodyguard on their reality show, which ran from 2006 to 2008 — and also later appeared on ‘Fantasy Factory.’ 

With all the fake news bullshit we here about every day I was hoping this one was fake, but nay, Big Black from Rob & Big died tonight and that makes me sad as hell. For a show that only ran for 2 seasons Rob & Big is still one of the funniest MTV shows ever. I used to watch the shit out of that show. I own the DVDs. I shit you not.

So Big Black, in your honor, I will continue to routinely quote an MTV show from 2006. Do work son. 22’s. Murdered out. This guy is the reason that 11 years later I still wanna grab two of my buddies, head down to Sears for a photoshoot, and recreate the Death Row Records portrait to frame on my wall.

Now onto the highlights. There are so many of them – the nutritionist episode (“Next time you wanna smoke a crack rock, just smoke a little”), the mini horse, the constant hazing of Drama and the birth of Drama Beats, Big Bob, the Death Row portrait, Uncle Jerry, Black Lavender and of course Bobby Light,  but apparently MTV is more strict than the goddamn MLB with video clips so there’s only so many I could find online. Roll the tape.
