A native of Mississippi, Boykin rose to fame starring the MTV reality show “Rob & Big” with fellow costar, and close friend Rob Dyrdek. The show aired from 2006-2008 until Boykin decided to leave after his longtime girlfriend. Below is a funny clip from the MTV show.

Boykin also worked as Dyrdek’s bodyguard and made a ton of appearances on Dyrdek’s other MTV shows including Fantasy Factory and Ridiculousness. Chanel West Coast, who also starred on Fantasy Factory and Ridiculousness took to her twitter expressing her grief over the loss of Boykin.
