JAY-Z Dedicated A Live "Numb/Encore" Performance to Chester Bennington

JAY-Z Dedicated A Live "Numb/Encore" Performance to Chester Bennington Jay-Z Pay Tribute to Chester Bennington at V Festival

On Sunday night, JAY-Z performed a headlining set at the UK's V Festival, and he took the time to shout out one of his former collaborators: the late Chester Bennington, of Linkin Park.

For those of you who grew up in the early 2000s listening to rap-rock, JAY-Z and Linkin Park's 2004 remix EP Collision Course was basically everything you could possibly want. Though the EP had six songs total, "Numb/Encore" is probably the most iconic track; the supergroup even collected a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2006. (During a performance where Bennington also covered "Yesterday" with Sir Paul McCartney.)

During his performance at V, JAY-Z took a moment to address Bennington's death: "Can you guys light it up tonight for Chester? Linkin Park, one time, tonight. Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight!"
