play•Music || Ep. 23


New | Old | All

We’ve lost many a good one for the year. Too many to go through all. From Phife to Prince and now Chester. Chester Charles Bennington’s pain comforted many through the years as one of the two lead voices in the band Linkin Park. The play•Music podcast is firmly rooted in hip hop, lyricism, and straight bars, but at its center play•Music is about GOOD music. Linkin Park’s aural artistry allowed you to appreciate their bars, their stories, their pain, and their joys through their flirtation with their love of Hip Hop. Look, turn down the electric guitar and turn up the bass and you may be surprised to hear what is left. To me? Hip Hop. That’s what’s left. Losing Chester is losing a part of me.

This week’s episode features a tribute to Chester and the boys along with the usual fare. Jay Z’s 4:44, Khaled’s Grateful, 21 Savage’s Issa, French Montana’s Jungle, and Big Boi’s Boomiverse all contribute to this episode of play•Music. Everybody seems to be leaning on Sizzla for samples so I threw him in there too. More tune for that head top of yours. Thanks for being here with me every week. #playMusic
