Andre 3000 playing Jimi Hendrix for the new biopic

Watch The First Leaked Scene Of André 3000 As Jimi Hendrix

The announcement was made back in 2012 and we’ve finally got a peek at the real deal –André Benjamin “3 Stacks” aka André 3000 aka one-half of Outkast — as rock god Jimi Hendrix. The biopic on the rock legend, All Is By My Side, makes its American premiere at this year’s SXSW which kicks off this week in Austin, Texas. Check out the video up top and see if Mr. Stacks makes a convincing Hendrix or not.

Fans of the silver screen should note that the film is directed by John Ridley and stars Imogen Poots (Jimi’s lady friend in this clip) Hayley Atwell, Burn Gorman, and Ashley Charles as some of 3000’s more recognizable cast mates.
