Jay-Z Joins Linkin Park On Stage for Encore Jam

February 22, 2008 4:44 PM ET

After headlining a show at the Apple Store, Linkin Park broke out the big guns for their encore at last night's sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden. After a brief psych-out where the band announced "Goodnight, New York," Jay-Z stormed the stage to throw down with his collaborators from 2004's Collision Course EP. They performed two songs: "Numb" and a mash-up of LP's "Faint" with Jigga's "Jigga What, Jigga Who." Rock Daily was there with its trusty video camera to capture the latter, so check out the clip above.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
