Jay-Z pays tribute to Chester Bennington during V Festival headline set

Jay-Z paid his respects to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington during his headline set at V Festival.

The rapper and the rock band have a history together, having collaborated the aforementioned remix of Linkin Park's "Numb" in 2004.

"If you know the song, sing along", he told the crowd.

According to Metro, JAY-Z asked the crowd to make some noise for Chester, "so he can hear you in heaven".

After the corwd erupted in a sing-along to the song's chorus, he then began to segue the song into one of his own, "Encore".

Jay-Z and Linkin Park will, of course, be forever intertwined due to their collaborative 2004 Collision Course mash-up EP.

Backed by a 40-foot-tall, metallic Jeff Koons inflatable dog, Hov performed songs off his stellar 13th studio album 4:44 for the first time, including "The Story of O.J." and "Family Feud" and "Smile".

JAY-Z is now in support of his album 4:44.

Check out JAY-Z's tribute to Chester Bennington above.

Bennington was laid to rest on July 29, with fans still mourning the loss of the singer.
