Earlier this month it was reported that the ever-fabulous half of Outkast, André Benjamin aka André 3000, would be starring in a Jimi Hendrix biopic entitled All Is By My Side. The film would take place in the UK during Hendrix’s recording of Are You Experienced from 1966-67. The biopic seemed to hit a snag, though, when the Hendrix estate released a statement stating that all depictions of Jimi would require their approval, which All Is By My Side apparently did not have.
Now filming is (apparently) back on, or at least going ahead without permission, as new photos of André 3000 as Hendrix have surfaced online. Taken in Ireland, the photos, courtesy of Rap Radar, show Benjamin trying to up his groovy garb as he films. Unfortunately for him, the afro is a dead giveaway.
