Wale has unveiled the visual treatment to his Jacquees-assisted single, “Black Bonnie.” Directed by Yasha Gruben, the video sees the Washington, D.C. rapper in various scenes throughout history, working the Bonnie-and-Clyde narrative into his progressive black love storyline, alongside his love interest played by Ashley Blaine Featherson.

“Black Bonnie” is a single off Wale’s March EP It’s Complicated.
