      Jay-Z & Linkin Park “Numb/Encore” MTV’s Ultimate Mash-Up’s Presents: Jay-Z & Linkin Park: Collision Course Roc-A-Fella Records/Warner Bros. Records Director: Joe DeMaio/Kimo Proudfoot

      “Numb/Encore” is a genius music production. The song contains the coupling of two different singles - “Encore” from Jay-Z’s “The Black Album” (2003) and “Numb” from Linkin Park’s “Meteora” (2003) album.


      This has to be one of the best mixtures of Rock and Hip Hop seamlessly fused together. “Numb/Encore” is featured on Jay-Z and Linkin Park’s mash-up album called “Collision Course” (2004).

      The music video is not much - just a bunch of concert footage with Jay-Z and Linkin Park performing and as well as ...


      • footage of them writing, rehearsing, and recording the song together behind the scenes - but the song makes up so much for what the music video lacks. The song itself is so enjoyable and listenable that it goes by so quick that it feels short but it’s only about three minutes and thirty
        seconds long approximately (i.e. about the average runtime for a song, generally speaking).

        Overall, this Jay-Z and Linkin Park mash-up of a song fares far better than anything bands like Limp Bizkit ever did. However, I think if the music video was something more original and creative than just simple concert footage, it would have been an even bigger MTV/BET blockbuster.
