But after a blog we wrote this morning was "forward[ed] to the IT commander", according to spokesperson Napier Velasquez, the department has removed the offending art-- a painting of five apparent gang-members, two of which were modeled after the rapper-- from the gang unit banner on their website.

We'll be keeping our eye on the website to see if the next gang-member caricatures resemble Nas. It would only be fair.
