Paul Anka

I've Got No Beef with Jay-Z

3/31/2013 5:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

033113_paul_anka_launchMega music producer Paul Anka was a little peeved Jay-Z blew off his offer to collaborate on a song, but is adamant there is no bad blood between the two, telling TMZ that he think Jay is a great guy.

When we bumped into Paul earlier this week, he told us he reached out to Jay to do a track on his upcoming album "Duets," but the rapper never called him back ... which left him a little ticked off.

But when we ran into Paul in Beverly Hills last night, he downplayed the whole ordeal and told our photog he doesn't feel Jay-Z has to apologize for anything.

Anka's album, which features Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and not Jay-Z is due out next month,

If Jay-Z disrespects DeNiro, Jay-Z is going to also disrespect Anka. Jay-Z appears to have no class. He might be important, but Jay-Z's is dissing legends in these cases. 'Not a good move in the long run.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Paul you are realms beyond jay z. You don't have to explain a thing. jay z thinks he's up there with Brando now that he owns part of a basketball team & made a couple of albums. He'll try to catch up, but he'll never make it. You're better off without him.
