Big Black Net Worth $3 Million

Born in Raleigh, Mississippi, Big Black’s career started out in the US Navy. He stumbled into the limelight when he was hired as part of a sketch Rob Dyrdek, a professional skater, was shooting for DC Shoes. Instead of just a one-time deal, the two clicked and became great friends.

After the sketch, Big Black was then hired by Dyrdek to become his fulltime bodyguard, and the job became his major source of income. Later on the two were approached by television network MTV to star in a reality show, and in 2006 “Rob & Big” was born.

“Rob & Big” became an instant hit among the fans of Dyrdek and of the network as well. It featured the day-to-day lives of the two, as they lived together under one roof. Aside from showing their everyday lives, Big Black also got to break two Guinness World Records, for eating the most powdered doughnuts in less than three minutes (he was able to eat five), and for peeling and eating three bananas in one minute. The popularity of the show helped in his career, and also significantly increased his net worth.

After three seasons, “Rob & Big” ended in 2008 when Big Black needed to move out of Dyrdek’s house as he became a father, but their collaboration continued, and in 2009, he made an appearance in Dyrdek’s new show on MTV entitled “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory” – the reality show featured Dyrdek’s warehouse where he designs and creates his skateboards. Other shows that he appeared in also include “Ridiculousness”, “MTV Guy Code”, and “MTV Snack Off.” His appearances in various shows also helped to increase his net worth.

Aside from his fame in television, Big Black also created his own clothing brand in 2007, unsurprisingly called “Big Black.” The clothing brand became famous for its caps and T-shirts, and also for the catchphrase “Do Work” which was Big Black’s favourite. The success of his clothing brand also helped add to his net worth.

In terms of his personal life, Big Black was married to Shannon Turley. The two wed in 2008, but divorced only a year a later. They have daughter together named Isis.

On 9 May 2017, Big Black died from the effects of a massive heart attack, in Plano, Texas.
