The Cinematic Music Group executive has previously worked with Troy Ave, T-Pain, Cam’ron, and, most recently, Lloyd Banks. During his eulogy, Hit-Boy mentioned that Hovain had recently contacted him about working on some music with Lloyd Banks.

Hovain taught “The Business of Music,” an eight-week course that provided students with in-depth knowledge of publishing deals and business positions required for an artist’s success, as a part-time professor at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn.

On social media, several other musicians paid tribute to Hovain.
