NBC's Nightly News Picks up on Riptide's Miami Police Jay-Z Gaffe

Last night, NBC's Brian Williams gave a shout-out to Riptide's story on the Miami Police Department using images of Jay-Z to depict gangbangers on its website.

Of course, Williams didn't credit us by name, but we'll forgive him because he has really nice hair.

While the MPD never did give us a reason for the bizarre celebrity cameo on its gang-unit page, it apparently told MSNBC that the images were just a "place-keeper for artwork they were developing" that were "mistakenly" posted online. Yoops!
