While Outkast is currently reunited for a globe-spanning festival tour, band member Andre 3000 (AKA Andre Benjamin) is getting added exposure thanks to the release of the first trailer from upcoming feature film, Jimi: All is By My Side, a biopic starring the rapper in the titular role of Jimi Hendrix.
Aretha Franklin is the Queen of Soul, but she’s calling in some heavy hitters — and drawing on some classic material — to make her next album one to remember.
A scene from the upcoming Hendrix biopic has just surfaced.
The film doesn’t have any Hendrix compositions, but uses songs that Jimi covered.
Andre 3000 will be tackling some of music’s most revered artists while playing the role of Jimi Hendrix in the biopic, All Is By My Side. The Outkast lyricist will be performing legendary songs by the Beatles, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, and others.
Just a few days ago, it was reported that a Jimi Hendrix biopic titled All Is By My Side, starring hip-hop artist Andre 3000 of OutKast, was scheduled to begin shooting in Ireland this month
