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.

Paul Anka disrespected Harvey Levin for not including him in the greatest collaborators.

Whites call Jay Z a "thug" but Mob connected Sinatra and Paul Anka are "legends". Typical pigskin hypocrisy.

Anka is one of the heavyweights in music. What is sad is that Jay Z probably doesn't even known who Anka is. HE just samples him ignorantly. Most rappers in actuality know NOTHING about music. They steal it and use it. They make noise, not music. #Sad.

'Rap' or 'Hip Hop' should never be used in the same sentence as 'talent'. Jay-z is nowhere near the same level as Paul Anka or Frank Sinatra. Hip hop lyrics are the dumbest of the dumb meant to speak to the dull brains. Just listen to the lyris and tell me if then even make sense. Then again its a dumb generation that's growing up.

He refers to himself as "Hova" which is short for Jehovah. Jay z thinks he is God but he is just a conceited arrogant moron. All the money in the would can't buy you happiness or a soul. You'll get yours in the end Mr. Carter.

All these silly comments - if u were worth half a billion dollars would you be returning phone calls so regularly? He probably didn't even know the guy tried to contact him - u dumb fux act like these guys are regular guys that stuck (like you) on a mobile device all day. Most celebs don't have time for entertainment.

I also wonder how many ppl commenting got a call & didn't return it as promptly as the initial caller hoped for or expected.

A lot of problems in this world would disappear if we talk to each other instead about each other.

Jay-Z returns the calls he wants too. You think he wants to be on an album with Dolly Parton???
