JAY-Z Speaks About Chester Bennington's Suicide And Hope It Becomes "A Wake-Up Call"

Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington took his life on July 20, bringing an abrupt end to his musical journey. Throughout his lucrative career, he’d gotten projects done with Hip Hop artists like Rob Swift no matter the X-ecutioners, DJ Z-Trip and JAY-Z.

JAY, who associated ourselves with Linkin Park for the 2004 collaborative EP Collision Course, stopped from the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge earlier now and performed their breakout hit, “Numb/Encore.”

After his gig, he spoke to the BBC’s Clara Amfo about mental health.

“Hopefully his death serves as a wake-up call,” JAY said. “Mental health is a real thing. You never know what people are going through. Money or fame doesn’t mean anything if you’re not happy inside.

“A lot of people, we go on and we don’t deal with what’s happening to us,” he continued. “Especially if you’re a performer like that. You just start numbing yourself. You just become numb. He’s singing it. You just go and get bigger audiences and things like that and you move further away from yourself.”
