Rap duo Run the Jewels dedicated their performance of “Down” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday to the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington. They also brought out special guest Joi, who lends her soulful vocals to the album version of “Down.”

Run the Jewels  played another song from their excellent album, Run the Jewels 3, “Panther Like a Panther.” They brought out Trina, who is featured on the album version, to perform the song alongside them.

When news spread of Bennington’s reported suicide, Run the Jewels expressed their condolences on social media. “Salutes and condolences to Mike [Shinoda] and your band mates,” Killer Mike wrote in an Instagram post. “Rest easy beloved human being.” Stone Temple Pilots also shared a statement today in memory of Bennington.
