Christopher 'Big Black' Boykin Has Died | Big Black

Christopher “Big Black” Boykin passed away from a heart attack on May 9, a rep for Boykin confirmed to PEOPLE.

Boykin was widely famous for starring next to Rob Dyrdek on MTV’s Rob & Big. The show centered around the two and their daily antics, playing off their size difference and the bond the two shared. Coming in at 6’6” and 375 pounds, Boykin was Dyrdek’s bodyguard. The show ran for 3 seasons with 31 total episodes, and made the song “Best Friend” into an iconic hit.

Boykin is survived by his daughter, Isis Rae Boykin, who is 9-years-old.
