His upbeat presence comes just after opening up on the Rap Radar podcast last week about his alleged feud with Kanye West, revealing how was hurt by his fellow rapper's comments about his family. 

"You got hurt, because this guy was talking about you on a stage," JAY-Z said on the podcast. "But what really hurt me, you can't bring my kid or my wife into it. Like, Kanye is my little brother. He's talked about me a hundred times. He even made a song called ‘Big Brother.' We've gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it's a problem."

While he appeared in a good mood on Saturday night, Jay took time earlier in the day, at the V Festival in Staffordshire, England, to honor his late collaborator Chester Bennington. The pair worked together on 2004's Collision Course mash-up EP with Linkin Park.

During his set, he paid tribute to Bennington by performing "Numb/Encore" for the crowd. 

The rapper also performed a number of tracks from his new album, 4:44, live for the first time, including “Kill Jay Z,” “The Story Of O.J.,” “Family Feud,” and “Smile.”
