Andre Benjamin, better known as Andre 3000, will star in Jimi: All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix biopic due later this year. If the trailer is any evidence, it looks like Andre has simply nailed the voice and mannerisms of Hendrix.
From Academy Award-winning writer-director John Ridley (12 Years A Slave), the film covers a year in Hendrix's life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York's Cheetah Club to making his mark in London's music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph.
There's also a scene recreating the infamous London jam between an unknown Jimi Hendrix and the guy hailed as a guitar god, Eric Clapton. Clapton was left humiliated by Hendrix.
Jimi: All Is By My Side will hit theaters on September 26, 2014.
