As Andre Benjamin prepares for his dream role as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming film All Is By My Side, he’s getting his mind right with a little bit of window shopping on Grafton Street in Ireland. 

DETAILS: Andre 3000 Will Play Original Music Is Hendrix Biopic

Could this be how Andre Three Stacks escapes from the news that his new movie isn’t being backed by the Hendrix estate? Who knows, but with The Love Below rapper’s musical skills, we’re sure he will make due with all Hendrix-inspired music, even though he won’t be privy to the guitar god’s original recordings. 

MUSIC: Andre 3000 & The Gorillaz “DoYaThang”

Besides, the story is based off Hendrix’s interviews and his life; it’s about more than just the music. 

All Is By My Side is based on interviews and archival materials and “captures the energy, the charisma, [and] the mind-boggling talent of a legend whose musical influence still resonates around the world today,” read Thursday’s official announcement.

“At its heart a love story, ‘All Is by My Side’ is about a man growing up, falling in love and becoming Jimi.”
