    The only gang he's a part of is Beyoncé's.

    Jay-Z isn't going to be happy when he finds out his mug has been plastered all over the Miami Police Department's website connected with gang activity.

    Jigga what?

    That's right. If you happened to visit the department's website yesterday, Jay's face was plastered in a PSA banner, with two sketches of him appearing next to a headline reading, "Report Gang Activity."

    The MIami New Times discovered the faux pas, identifying the pics as publicity shots of the rapper's from back when he dressed a little more street and a lot less suit.

    Not long after they were called out, the department removed the ads, saying it was "inadvertently done" and calling it a "mistake."
