Paul Anka

RIPS Jay-Z

Rapper DISRESPECTED Me

Paul Anka -- one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time -- is calling out Jay-Z ... telling TMZ the rapper treated him like a chump ... and now Anka is PISSED.

Anka was outside Madeo restaurant in L.A. last night, when we asked about his upcoming album "Duets" -- which features collaborations with legends like Willie Nelson, Gloria Estefan and Dolly Parton.

But you know who isn't on the album? Jigga ... because according to Anka, Mr. Knowles didn't have the common courtesy to return a simple phone call!!!

Anka says he feels completely disrespected -- and says Jay acted "inappropriately" towards him ... especially since Jay once sampled Anka's biggest hit "My Way" on a rap song.

Now, Anka is escalating his anger into a full on war of the music titans -- and even took a shot back at Jay-Z.

Not many people in the music biz would have the stones to go after Hova ... then again, not many people would have the stones to disrespect Anka either.

JayZ did the same thing to Robert DeNiro, he wasn't returning his calls. So when DeNiro saw JayZ in a restaurant he chewed his ass out about his bad manners!!

Anka was disrespected by Mr. Michelle Knowles the very same way Robert DeNiro was disrected by the august egocentric cheap stuffed pillow rapping bilge magnet. DeNiro took Mr. Jigga to task in front of an entire party in New York. Jigga is full of not only himself but the rabid dysentery of self narcisissm of black pop culture where you believe having a cheap flagrant photo op of a pyramid of flat champagne with the PREEZY is more important than showing respect to the very people that showed the way to success like Anka and Deniro. Jigga and his Knowles who now Bows Down will knowles whatstitslike to look up one day when no one answers their calls.
Typical stench of too much money and not enough common sense. Too much sugar coated cr*p cakes for dinner and forgetting what and where you came from. Anka deserves respect..DeNiro deserves respect far more than cheap publicity photo ops with frauds.

If Jay used the sample, you better believe it was paid for. That doesn't make you friends, Paul!

JayZ. Lol, what an idiot. You must be letting that ridiculous Kanye handle your msgs too. Show some respect, as you expect the world to show you. And while you're at it please make some decent music.
