Hov was wearing multiple pieces by Billionaire Boys Club, the clothing brand established by Pharrell Williams and Nigo in 2005. In August 2011 it was revealed that he, through a joint-venture with the Iconix Brand Group, had invested in the brand. The following year BBC did a record high $30 million in volume, up from the previous year of $12 million. Multiple areas of the brand currently operate out of the Roc Nation offices in New York.
