Run The Jewels Dedicate Performance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ to Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington
Yesterday, the tragic news of Chester Bennington's passing hit the music community and Linkin Park fans hard, with everyone still trying to process the news. After reports that the band's lead singer committed suicide, Run The Jewels dedicates their performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to honor him.
The rap duo take the stage as part of the outdoor concert series for the talk show, where they perform some of the big hits off of their recent RTJ3 album. The two first perform "Panther Like a Panther," where they bring out Trina to assist them with her enthusiastic guest verse. Finally, they finish their set off with "Down," joined by Joi Giliam on the vocals, which they dedicate to Bennington.
"We want to dedicate this song to Chester Bennington. Rest in peace. Love," El-P tells the crowd.
Both El-P and Killer Mike have had a stellar year so far, as they released their most recent studio album back in December 2016, and have been pushing it hard ever since. The two are also embarking on their Run The World Tour, which they've recruited Danny Brown and Denzel Curry to join them for.
They've also released multiple visuals, including the videos for "Legend Has It" and most recently, "Don't Get Captured."
Watch both performances from Run The Jewels to see them dedicate "Down" to Chester Bennington.
