Brooklyn-born round-the-way rapper Jay-Z (pictured right) and Italian tough guy and acting veteran Robert De Niro (pictured) reportedly got in to a heated argument at a birthday bash for actor Leonardo DiCaprio at a New York City eaterie, according to the New York Post.

According to unnamed sources, the “Godfather II” star was holding court at his table when the rap mogul came by his table to greet him. De Niro then took the opportunity to tell Jay-Z in no uncertain terms that he did not appreciate that his numerous phone calls to him were ignored.

De Niro reportedly told Jay-Z, “If somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude,” the source told the Post.

Apparently the alleged scolding had something to do with with a song Jay-Z  had agreed to record for the famed Tribeca Film Festival, which was co-founded by the actor who is known for playing volatile roles. Supposedly DeNiro reached out to Jay-Z to further hash out the scope of what he wanted to get done and the performer failed to call him back.

Reportedly, Jay-Z appeared unfazed by the verbal tongue lashing and tried to make nice with De Niro by making jokes and explaining how bad he is with returning phone calls but his attempt fell on deaf ears. De Niro, who is also a native New Yorker, was clearly upset about being ignored and his anger became quite noticeable to the room of fellow celeb A-listers, such as Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, and Cameron Diaz.

The source then mentioned the fact that DeNiro’s continuous scolding was so loud that Beyoncé had to come over to try and squelch it but was not successful.  “De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful,’” the source told the Post.  “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.”

A source close to De Niro told the Post, however, that the alleged beef was in fact just a private conversation between both artists, who actually live near each other in the Tribeca area of the city.

Ironically, Jay-Z’s hit song “Empire State of Mind” mentions the Oscar-winning tough guy, “Yea, I’m out that Brooklyn, now I’m down in Tribeca/Right next to De Niro, but I’ll be hood forever.”
