Andre 3000 is Jimi Hendrix on Stage in New "All is By My Side" Trailer

We see Andre 3000 on stage as Jimi Hendrix in the new trailer for the Jimi Hendrix biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side.

The new clip offers our first look at the rapper/actor performing as the legendary guitarist.

The movie will not include any of Hendrix's songs, but will include new versions of songs that Hendrix famously covered before the release of his debut album, Are You Experienced?

The new versions were recorded by Andre 3000 (AKA Andre Benjamin) and a group of session musicians.

The movie will release on September 26th.  It will focus on Hendrix's transition from a backing guitarist to his rise to fame and breakout at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival.

John Ridley wrote and directed the movie.  He's best known for his work on 12's Year's a Slave.
