HotBoy Finn: The Glee-Inspired Rising Artist and Rap Star Continues to Carry Legacies in the Music Industry

Driven by his father’s musical streak as a rapper and his love for the late Glee superstar Cory Monteith, who starred as Finn Hudson, hip-hop artist HotBoy Finn seeks to continue the musical legacies left behind by the two individuals who have inspired him the most in his musical journey. As a rising singer today, he seeks to leave a lasting impact on other people’s lives through the power of music.

HotBoy Finn is an empowered rapper, singer, and songwriter taking over the music arena. Born as Donnie Emanuel Poole, son of rapper Marvin Poole, his passion for music and singing runs deep. Growing up, he witnessed his father’s musical endeavors at an early age. This served as one of his ultimate inspirations in pursuing music. In addition to his father’s rap history, he also gathered inspiration from musical TV shows. Donnie was an avid fan of the famous American musical comedy-drama TV series Glee. He quickly became enamored with Cory Monteith’s role as Finn Hudson and his overall musical talent. Since the actor’s passing, Donnie has been on a mission to carry on Finn’s legacy in the music world. 

In chasing after his musical dreams, Donnie coined the stage name “HotBoy Finn.” The name combines both his love for Glee’s Finn character and Megan Thee Stallion’s Hot Boy and Hot Girl concept. Essentially, the stage name resonated with Donnie’s versatility in music and his ability to champion whatever genres he explores. From being able to belt out Glee-style songs to winning at hip-hop and rap like Hot Girl Meg, HotBoy Finn can handle it all.

While music plays a significant role in Donnie’s life, HotBoy Finn does not box himself in the music industry alone. He is also a leader when it comes to philanthropic endeavors. He prides himself on being a board member and sitting as the president of the Giving Hands Organization, a group dedicated to helping troubled and disadvantaged youth. On top of this, the upcoming rapper is also a rising entrepreneur. He is most excited about launching his clothing line Finn-O Clothing Co. soon. 

As a music artist, HotBoy Finn strives to produce tracks that all communities can enjoy. He is focused on being inclusive when it comes to music. That said, people from all walks of life will surely enjoy his tracks. The upcoming rap star successfully released some tracks on Spotify entitled “I Want Designer” and “Ice Me Out.” The catchy tunes and wicked wordplay of his songs quickly win the hearts of Glee fans and hip-hop enthusiasts. At present, he is still working on more musical projects in mind.  

For HotBoy Finn, it is an honor for him to continue the legacy of his rapper father, Marvin Poole, and favorite Glee quarterback, the late Cory Monteith. Through the power of music, he hopes to touch other people’s lives in the same way his idols have made a difference in his life.
