Watch Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in ‘All Is By My Side’ Sneak Peek

Andre 3000 is certainly bust this year. The OutKast member will not only perform at a slew of festivals alongside Big Boi in the coming months but he’s also preparing for the release of ‘All Is By My Side,’ the biopic on Jimi Hendrix’s life.

The film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, however, actual footage never made it to the internet. The clip above comes just days away from the film’s screening at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

The rapper’s portrayal of the legendary rocker has been deemed “impeccable” by critics. The scene above finds Andre as Hendrix confessing to having written a song for Linda Keith, who is played by Imogen Poots. He invites her to the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, which would become a pivotal moment in Hendrix’s career. He notoriously lit his guitar on fire while onstage there.

Even in the newly unearthed video you can see Andre’s method in portraying the musician by asking himself, “What would Jimi want people to know that they can’t get off of YouTube?”
