By Hayden Wright

In 2004, JAY-Z and Linkin Park released Collision Course, an EP of collaborations that produced the GRAMMY-winning mashup “Numb/Encore.” At the time, it was a groundbreaking synthesis of mainstream rap and popular nu-metal, introducing LP and Hova to new audiences. In the weeks since Chester Bennington’s death, tributes have poured in; At Staffordshire’s V Festival on Saturday Night, JAY-Z joined the chorus with his own memorial performance.

“Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight,” the rapper said.

Additionally, Jay made the live debut of some new material from 4:44, including “Kill Jay Z,” “The Story of O.J.” and “Family Feud.”
