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.

Jay Z is just a self entitled douche bag who is not a musician. Just a rhyming idiot who has to steal and sample other peoples music like the rest of the no talent rappers do because they don't have the musical talent or intelligence to write their own.

Jay-Z should get over himself. He will never have the talent of Paul Anka.

Anka's just calling a spade a spade. He outed JigaZee as the punkass he is. Robert de Niro did the same thing . I for one give de Niro and Anka the props and benefit of the doubt against overhyped drug dealing fake musician.

Jay has no class. He is what you call new money. When you disrespect your elders this is not good. Look at how he treated Robert D are you talking to me. One of the greatest stars.

JigaZee couldn't write nor sing a melody if his life depended on it. It's barely music, the crap he churns out out an industrial pace. Decent con man and businessman tho.....
