Everyone in Miami went crazy on Instagram when they spotted a photo of Jay-Z rocking a black shirt with the word "Hialeah" printed on it, a T-shirt that appeared to be made by local streetwear brand, IAE.

Well it turns out that everyone, ourselves included, was duped! Apparently some clever photoshop pro (or just someone on IAE's PR team) grabbed a photo of the rapper wearing Frank & Jan's "Blame Society" tee back in 2013 and changed it to represent the city of progress, as The305 pointed out to us on Twitter.

Alright, so we fell for it. Royally. But we're on to you, Hialeah hoaxer. We're on.
