Paul Anka

RIPS Jay-Z

Rapper DISRESPECTED Me

EXCLUSIVE

032613_paul_anka_launch
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.

So....Jay Z is your field slave so he gotta answer 'yes Massa' as soon as u call? If he wasn't a sure thing you wouldn't even p!$$ on him you old fool. He's busy making $, making music & having a family, get over it. Acting like a fu&$ and du$@ hoe

Didn't Jay also not return DeNiro's call, too?
Who is around these trash-heads pumping their egos up so high?
Jay and Bey are barely a footnote in entertainment history in comparison.

Get of Jaz's ballz.. Seriously he paid to use his sample and that's that. I'm sure its some kind of miscommunication issue anyhow and Anka was buzzed anyhow and said a little too much. All will be cleared up before the end of the week.

Where was the aggravation shown in this video? I sensed a little bit of disappointment from Anka but not resentment, frustration or animosity. Anka was just making conversation to match wheat the interviewer's question was. The title of this video is clearly a manipulation of what was really said here in this clip to. My guess is that the person that made this thread was so desperate to find some kind of dirt/drama that he/she created some out of nothing. This thread is Total B.S.

ok look the lady , jay-z's assistant told this anka dude he was busy . she also said that he'd would get back with him ,that business sometimes you cant answer everyone's beckon call,so stop crying and disrespecting jay-z just cause he sampled your music doesnt mean you get a feature on your song you got paid dude . Furthermore, how do you get mad a jay and give justin baby a pass for his BS. COME ON TMZ AND ANKA REALLY.

In 30 years, there won't be a person alive (drug dealers and welfare bums have shorter lives) who remembers who Jay-Z was. His music won't be on in restaurants, doctors offices, or "covered" by artists on TV/future media. Mr. Anka's music will still be referred to as CLASSICS......
