Andre 3000 is Jimi Hendrix

Now we all know André 3000 (André Benjamin) from the group Outkast and he’s also dabbled in acting in the past but now he appearing on the screen in a much larger role than ever before. André is channeling the legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix in the long-awaiting film All Is By My Side.

12 Years A Slave producer, John Ridley, directs the biopic film that focuses on the iconic rocker’s recording of his Are You Experienced album during 1966 and 1967.

The film is based on actual interview and archival materials and André has definitely done his homework, portraying Hendrix with authenticity through well thought out mannerisms and voice. The one thing missing from this film will be seeing André perform as Hendrix. Hendrix’s residence refused to give filmmakers the rights to any of his catalog which is such a shame as seeing as talented an artist as André 3000 embody another great artist would have been mindblowing.
