When Andre 3000 (Andre Benjamin) had been chosen to play Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming bio-pics, some were wondering if the OutKast member would be able to take on the role of the iconic musician even though he has had several film credits to his name.

Today, the first official trailer for All is By My Side was released ahead of its South by Southwest premiere. The clip features Benjamin’s Hendrix flirting with Imogen Potts’ Linda Keith who was Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’ longtime girlfriend. Keith would go on to influence many songs for both Hendrix and Richards.

All is By My Side was written and directed by now Academy Award winner John Ridley and already premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film has already been released in the United Kingdom, but as of now, there is no word on when it will be released in the United States.
