André Benjamin better known as André 3000, one half of the OutKast duo will be playing Jimi Hendrix in a new Hendrix biopic titled Jimi: All is By My Side. Now, he may not be able to use any of Hendrix’s actually music but judging from the trailer, it’s not going to stop him. The promising trailer shows André 3000 stepping into the shoes of Hendrix with the prefect hint flair and class.

Written and directed by John Ridley, the screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave, Jimi: All is By My Side surrounds Hendrix’s pre-fame years. In the trailer, André  is seen rocking a dandy suit and a lilting accent to tell the story of Hendrix’s debut album Are You Experienced


Set to hit cinemas later this year, Imogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, Ruth Negga and Adrian Lester also star in the film. Check out the trailer below.
