As promised, Wale released the video for “Bad” off his Folarin mixtape. The premiere comes hours after the MMG rapper announced the title and release date of his third album, The Gifted.
This classic “good girl/bad girl” tale features songbird Tiara Thomas.
Eddie Murphy’s full grown seed, Bria Murphy, plays the leading lady who catches Wale’s curious eye. Murphy’s “bad girl” character is living the crazy life in New York City, and giving her number to any man in close proximity—including a food vendor.
Her life is filled with late night partying, half-naked moments of reflection, subway rides, and s-x in a graffiti-filled club bathroom.
It’s hard to keep your eyes off Murphy, but Wale inadvertently takes back the viewers’ attention, thanks to the interesting up-do he rocks in a staircase scene.

That Wale takeover is real people. The Gifted drops June 25.
