Rob appears as a character in:

  • "Skate" a revolutionary video game produced by EA Sports
  • "Smackdown vs. Raw 2007" (create-a-character

Big Black

Christopher "Big Black" Boykin was born on January 26, 1972. He is known for his appearance with Rob Dyrdek on MTV's "Rob and Big."

He gets his nickname, "Big Black" from his above average height and weight.

Once a member of the U.S. Navy and a comedic rap group, "Chunky Boyz," Big Black received his claim to fame from the 2003 skateboarding film, "The DC" video, where Rob hires him to fend off other security guards.

"Big Black" currently has his own clothing company and signature hat collection. He sales his Big Black apparel online, at select stores.

Along with Rob Dyrdek, Big Black appears as a character in the EA Sports game "skate."


In the first episode of season one, Rob and Big decide to get an English bulldog puppy. Rob thought that since he was basically made up of meat, they should call him Meat Bag, AKA Meaty.


Mini, the miniature horse, was brought into the clan to be Meaty's companion. Mini rides in the back of the SUV whenever he goes along for a trip.

      I think this show is a total joke, MTV has turned into nothing but a black rap music show. Big is nothing but a fat slob and he is a fine example of what overeating and laziness does. I'm tired of wiggers and race.
