The lucky folks at South By Southwest will get to see the much-anticipated biopic “All is By My Side” next week, and now we can all have a taste of what Andre 3000 is cooking up.

In a new preview clip, the “Hey Ya” rapper plays the late, great Jimi Hendrix and he certainly seems to have done his homework.

While chatting with future manager Chas Chandler, Hendrix contemplates what it would mean for him to relocate to London.

Andre (as Jimi) explains, “I don't want to get caught up in those kind of labels, though. I don't want it to be, 'Well OK, he's playing the blues,' or 'He's playing R&B or soul or whatever.’”

To prepare for the role, Mr. 3000 “listened to hours of interviews. I watched films- watched his mannerisms.”
