He’s never been afraid of a challenge, and Andre 3000 is the spitting image of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix in a new still from “All Is By My Side.”

The “Hey Ya” rapper is featured in the new image (courtesy of the Toronto International Film Festival site), sporting an afro wig and authentic period garb.

And while Hendrix’s estate wouldn’t grant any rights to use Jimi’s music, Andre is convinced the film will be outstanding.

He told press, “In researching him, I saw a lot of the paths that he went down were the same ones that I went down when I was a young kid. He did what he thought was right for his music. I always gravitated towards him. ... This movie is the real s--- right here. I think people will learn things they didn't know."
