Jay Z Pays Tribute To Chester Bennington By Playing Numb/Encore at V Fest

EOnline - Jay-Z paid tribute to Chester Bennington at the U.K.’s Virgin V Festival Sunday night.

It was the first time the 47-year-old rapper had publicly mentioned the Linkin Park singer since Bennington committed suicide on July 20. “Can you guys light it up tonight for Chester?” Jay-Z asked fans at Hylands Park, where he rapped songs from 4:44 for the first time. “Linkin Park, one time—tonight. Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight!”

After the performance ended, Jay-Z shouted, “Peace and love!”



Still can’t hear this song or any Chester vocals without falling deep into a Linkin Park rabbit hole on Spotify.  Over here trying to catch up on New Music Friday, maybe a little “Chillin’ On A Dirt Road” mix on a summer Friday – nope, the instant that sing-scream drops it’s Linkin for the rest of the day.
