Andre 3000 As Jimi Hendrix Photos


The long in the works Jimi Hendrix biopic starring Outkast rapper André 3000All Is By My Side,  is finally going to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

We finally get an official image of 3000 as the legendary Rock guitarist. When the rapper/actor is dressed as the late Hendrix, the resemblance between the two artists is uncanny. Photos from the set that previously leaked proved this and latest photo, basically a headshot, follows suit.

Unfortunately, Hendrix’s estate refused to permit the use of the artist’s music for the film. Instead, 3 Stacks will sing covers of the music from the time period (1966 & 1967) including work by Muddy Waters and The Beatles. Check out the full photo, as well as previous images, in the gallery.
