First Clip of Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix Appears Online

The first footage of Andre 3000 playing Jimi Hendrix has surfaced online.

The OutKast singer, who is billed under his real name Andre Benjamin, is taken from the upcoming Hendrix biopic "All Is by My Side." As Classic Rock reports, the film is about the two year period in Hendrix's career that leads up to his show stopping performance at Monterey Pop festival in 1967.

"All Is by My Side" debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, will premiere in the US next week at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. The film, which was not approved by the Hendrix estate, will not feature any music from the iconic guitarist. Instead, new versions of covers played by Hendrix have been used. Director credit for the movie goes to John Ridley, who was the writer of Oscar winning movie "12 Years a Slave."

What do you think of the clip? Does Andre 3000 deliver as Hendrix? Will you be going to see the film? Let us know in the comments.
