First Look at Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in ‘Jimi: All Is By My Side’ (VIDEO)

Just ahead of its release at SXSW, a clip of Jimi Hendrix biopic “Jimi: All Is By My Side” starring Andre 3000 as the famed musician, has hit the web.

Though images have been released of the Outkast member as Hendrix, this is the first clip to emerge online. In it, he can be seen flirting with Linda Keith, played by Imogen Poots. Keith was the longtime girlfriend of Keith Richards, and inspired songs from both Hendricks and Richards.

“Jimi: All Is By My Side” is written and directed by recent Oscar-winning “12 Years a Slave” scribe John Ridley. It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

XLrator Media is distributing the biopic. No U.S. release date has been announced yet.
