Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter may be the wealthiest man in hip-hop but he’s still just another thug in the eyes of the law!
Jay-Z, who just covered Forbes Magazine as one of the richest men in America, was used by the Miami Police Department in a banner depicting five “thugish” looking characters. His image was portrayed on the departments website in a large mural with the words “Report Gang Activity”…
The banner which is supposed to encourage the reporting of gang activity features five tough looking men throwing up gang signs and holding weapons. Two of the images appeared to be the distinct image of Jay-Z’s recognizable mug.
As you can see in the banner, the man in the middle and the man to the left of him look eerily similar to the music mogul.
According to the MiamiNewTimes, the images have been removed from the website but there has been no comment or explanation from the Miami police department.
