Christopher “Big Black” Boykin, also known as the other half of Rob Dyrdek’s hit MTV show Rob & Big has been officially announced dead, according to TMZ.

As stated by TMZ, Boykin’s rep confirmed he died Tuesday morning.  There is no word on the cause of death.

Boykin was known through our televisions screen as Dyrdek’s best friend/bodyguard on the reality show, which ran from 2006 to 2008. The duo’s relationship did strain during the filming of the show.

The announcement was made 4:30 p.m. PT and Twitter has been hit with shock and condolences to Boykin’s family and Dyrdek.
