Jay's Flip-Flop Fight

9/15/2006 4:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

As the "retired" life of Jay-Z is about to come to an end, a new rap war is on the horizon: 'The Great Hip-Hop Flip-Flop Battle of 2006.'

It first started when Cam'ron released a Jay-Z dis track titled, "You Got It," in which he said, "How's the king of New York rocking sandals with jeans and he 42 years old?" Then DMX added his two cents to Vibe magazine saying, "The flip-flops - he's just not the same, It's Beyoncé".

In the upcoming Fall Music Preview in Entertainment Weekly, Jay-Z will announce the street, er beach date, for his next release, rumored to be titled "Kingdom Come."

That's the answer to the question "you know you don't have a life when?"

..."when you start a rap rivalry over sandals"

Wow these guys really have nothing better to do or perhaps the best diss they can come up with. Sounds like a few people trying to get their careers going by starting something up with Jay-Z

WTF, is wrong with wearing flip-flops? Jay-Z's flip-flops just may be worth more than their "rapper" shoes. They're just jealous ol' big lips has a smoking babe! One day when their careers go further down the drain, they'll be wishing for those flip-flops. Theyr'e just o' little boys fighting over who has the best shoes.

Hova the GOD! The rap game needs Jay-Z just to put everyone in their place. 50 Cent talking wreckless turning the industry soft with his kiddie sing-along-songs. Cam'ron and Dipset are through. Only Juelz Santana is worthwhile. The return of the dynasty is coming. Rocafella/DefJam is rebuilt. Nas, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, and now Jigga fresh out of retirement. Timbaland and Dr. Dre lacing the tracks on "Kingdom Come". It's game over for everyone else.

OH NO!!!!!! Jay Z has decided to wear sandals. AND NOW A DIS RAP WAR IS ABOUT TO BEGIN. Someone hurry call the POLICE!!! (rolls eyes)

Dayum can a man growup! Timbs and tennis shoes are not the alfa and omega. He's not a kid any more! It's called COMFORT!!! I bet Cam and DMX'z toes are all brown and feet smell like pickles from being crammed in them closed in shoes all the time! They both need to go sit down somewhere and perhaps WEAR SOME SANDALS

It's a dayum war going on and folks are worried about someone wearing flips flops.

SHIIIT!!!!

I like "do your chains hang low" that song is super funny. but the only song i like by cam'ron is "we can get it on tonight" that was my song there! HOWEVER, Cam'ron made it cool to wear "PINK" dude was wearing PINK FUR and everything and I cannot BELIEVE he has the unmitigated gall to diss JAY Z for wearing flip flops on the beach. WTF does cam'ron wear on the beach? PINK UGG boots? What, NIKES? Seriously, they need to up their game, supposedly their making so much $$$$

And dmx used to be sexy but that crack is eating away his brain cells, the boy looked good in that EXit Wounds movie now he looks like Pookie from New Jack City ! Cracked out.

They need to sit down, Jay z, the hova is going to eat them alive for the pink and the crack stuff.

Hey, anybody ever hear that track with eminem calling jarule the N word, him and DMX are on it dissing Beanie Seagal and Murder Inc, but yes, Eminem used the N word several times and made cowboy noises like he's gonna lynch them or something and DMX got his silly azz on there cosigning !

Proof, i'll link the underground track.
