André Benjamin, who you probably know better as Outkast’s André 3000, stars as Jimi Hendrix in a new biopic out this September.
The movie was unable to actually use any of Hendrix’s music, but from the looks of the trailer, it won’t make that big a difference. André seems to channel the psychedelic vibe of Hendrix with ease.
“Jimi: All Is By My Side” tells the guitarist’s early story between 1966 and ’67, before he became the legend he is now known as. The trailer makes it look like a must-see trip.
“Jimi” is written and directed by John Ridley, who won the Oscar this year for penning “12 Years a Slave.” The movie opens hits the big screen Sept. 26.
