Who needs Kaiju and Jaegers when it's Bobby-D vs. Jay-Z?

After what he said about Bobby D., Jay-Z will be lucky to find work as a backup singer for Who's Bad.

Where does Jay-Z-z-z get the balls big enough to take on (prior to 1996) the greatest actor of his generation? All Bobby axed for was a song for the Tribecca Film Festival -- a lil' piece of music. You can't return a phone call, hot shot? Oooh! What's the matter with you? You're lucky that all you got in return from Mr. DeNiro was a tongue-lashing, in front of Marty and your other celebrity chums, at Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday party. (Got video?)

The New York Post covered the story:

“'Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation,' the spy says. 'He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude.'

"When Jay-Z tried to make a joke of it, saying he is terrible on the phone, a source says, 'De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful.’

“'Beyoncé came over, but that didn’t calm Bob down,' the source said, adding that afterward, 'It was the talk of the party. Everyone was saying there’s only one star in New York bigger and badder than Jay-Z, and that’s Robert De Niro. He can be quite scary when he’s angry.'”

Then you know what? Don't do anything to piss him off!

You had to go public, huh Shawn-Z? “I treat people based on who they are," he told the crew at Power 104, "who they really are, like not the name, not Robert De Niro. Who you are as a person.”

There's more: “Everyone has to be respectful, and everyone has to be a human being and no one’s above. We all [are] human beings, and we all have to be respectful to one another and that’s just the end of it and just how I carry it with anybody.”

Easy to talk about respect when you're publicly dissing Martin Scorsese's fratello di sangue. Look at me: never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut. You got that?

Shawn, you're a good kid. Bobby's been good to you, now it's time for you to be good to him and stop being such an unconscionable ball-breaker. What is he, some sort of schmuck on wheels?

When DeNiro asks for an aria you had best provide an opera. You hear me hippety-hopper? Show some respect if you don't want Frankie No-Nose to turn you into a mile-and-a-half of new freeway in Pasadena.

I want you should find where DeNiro's mother lives (providing she's still alive) and carry her groceries home. Then maybe we'll pretend this incident never took place. And that's that.
