Baby E & Lil Wayne – Finessin

Watch the new video to Lil Wayne’s “No Ceilings 2” track “Finessin,” featuring Young Money signee Baby E.

Among the unexpected reworks to appear on Lil Wayne’s No Ceilings 2 was that of Baby E’s “Finessin.” Perhaps not, though, as the original currently has over 4 million plays on soundcloud, and it turns out that Baby E is signed to Young Money. Those unfamiliar with the Virginia singer/rapper can now receive a proper introduction, as Wayne’s version of “Finessin” has just been given the video treatment.

A young white kid with shoulder-length red hair? Not exactly what we pictured, though Baby E sounds ultra smooth on the hook here, and by the looks of it, he is indeed “Finessin” his way into the mainstream. Weezy shows up in an all-red OVO sweatsuit in the new video, and he drops off an auto-tuned verse that finds him mimicking the flow of Baby E. Wayne’s singing voice sounds nice atop soft, poppy productions like this one, which happens to be crafted by the Billboard-dominating Dr. Luke.
