Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix

I watched this clip of Andre 3000 earlier of him as Jimi Hendrix, and I have to say he has him down pretty good.

See Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in Clip From ‘All Is By My Side’ Biopic

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side won’t see its U.S. premiere until next week at South by Southwest 2014, but Rolling Stone is giving you a first look at Andre 3000 as the guitar god in an exclusive clip today. The video features Hendrix (played by the Outkast’s MC) sitting next to friend Linda Keith (Imogen Poots) in a New York restaurant while future manager Chas Chandler (Andrew Buckley) attempts to convince him to move to London, where guitarists are playing music inspired by the blues.

“I don’t want to get caught up in those kind of labels, though,” replies Hendrix. “I don’t want it to be, ‘Well OK, he’s playing the blues,’ or ‘He’s playing R&B or soul or whatever’.” With the rapper-turned-actor speaking in a rising-and-falling British accent and twisting his afro as he delivers his lines, it’s clear that he was serious when said that he “listened to hours of interviews. I watched films – watched his mannerisms” to understand Hendrix inside-out.
