Jay-Z

I Still Got Beef with De Niro

He's a Fraud!

Seems Jay-Z is still holding his grudge against Robert De Niro ... and earlier today, he put the actor on BLAST during a live radio interview.

Jay was telling all to Power 105.1 in NY ... when the DJs asked Hova about his beef with Robert De Niro ... which came to a head last year when RDN reportedly dressed Jay down at a party because the rapper didn't return his phone calls.

It's clear from the interview ... Jay doesn't care for Robert -- and though he never took a direct shot, he spoke in very pointed generics ... saying, "I treat people based on who they are ... who they REALLY are."

He continued, "It doesn't matter who you are, everyone has to be respectful."

You know how you know you're powerful ... when you can go on the radio and trash ROBERT DE NIRO!!!!

Jay Z is a useless wanna be gansta PUNK who is seriously delusional if he thinks he can hold a candle to Robert De Niro. Jay Z man you are not even a speck of dust in De Niro's world. Show some well deserved respect. De Niro dressed you down more so because you deserved it.

First of all, what happened to the days of TMZ having real journalistic credibility? Now you guys are just like the rest of the blogs, dramatic headlines with ridiculous writers making something out of nothing. If you watch the full interview, you'll see that he wasn't disrespectful in anyway while answering any of the questions. Nor was he disrespectful when he answered the question about De Niro. He was asked a question, and he answered. TMZ took a minute and 12 seconds out of an hour long interview and made a simple answer into something negative. And to everyone saying he's a nobody, hes a nobody worth half a billion, so I doubt he's worried. ;)

What a conceited putz. Obviously DeNiro has more class in his little toe than this guy has in his whole body. This isn't high school, this isn't the street .. dissing someone, especially a movie icon like DeNiro, while doing a radio interview is petty and cowardly. Put your di*k away Jay, it's not impressing anyone, you will never be of the caliber that DeNiro is.

I honestly cannot name anything that Jay Z has done (except Beyonce). DeNiro, on the other hand, yes, lots of good stuff.

Robert Di Niro ist a much much much bigger Star than Jay-Z! Robert De Diro, Miley Cyrus, Who's next?? And Beyoncé disses Robert Pattinson. It is always the same. When people have success, it change their character. They believe, they are God! What a shame!

Jay-Z is so dull. Prides himself on being eloquent but what is he without his thesaurus?

It's pretty funny how full of himself he is. He is so self absorbed, the line between talent and mass produced are askew.

Robert De Niro will forever be a legend.
Jay Z will fade.

F Jay Z! Besides the self-righteousness, I think a large reason for the backlash towards this guy and Beyonce was their tacky behavior during the last election season.


I get it, people have different political opinions and that's certainly their right! But these people abused their "celebrity" status as a platform to say some extremely nasty and disparaging things about people who are on the other side of the political spectrum. When you attack 50% of the Country in such a manner, it's a no wonder people are going to respond negatively.


What adds insult to injury on top of that though, it's clear that neither this Jay Z or Beyonce have the intellect to understand the ramifications of their political choices. For them, it was about being "hip" or "cool" and sadly, it was about skin color. As far as I'm concerned, that makes them racist. It also makes them trashy.


BTW, his new album SUCKS!
