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."
