André 3000 channeled the original black hippie, Jimi Hendrix, on set of All Is by My Side in Dublin, Ireland. The OutKast rapper rocked an Afro and Hendrix’ signature ’60s attire while shooting scenes for the biopic. He cozied up to his co-star Hayley Atwell, who plays Linda Keith, the woman who discovered the late rock star in New York’s Cheetah Club in 1966.

According to the Irish Film and Television Network, Hendrix’s estate does not endorse the movie and will not allow his music to be used.

All Is By My Side captures the energy, the charisma, the mind-boggling talent of a legend whose musical influence still resonates around the world today,” stated the film’s producers. “Based on actual interviews and archival materials, All Is By My Side brings authenticity and poignantly reveals a Jimi Hendrix behind the legend. At its heart a love story, All Is By My Side is about a man growing up, falling in love, and becoming Jimi.”
