Well now Andre Benjamin is about to blow up. Let’s hope so. He’s about to take on his most important role and many of you asking just who the hell is Andre Benjamin, right?
That’s the name his mama gave him when he drop in to the arms of her emergency room doctor on the day Andre 3000 was officially named Benjamin. The Outkast guy with the very distinctive voice on the Grammy winning group’s past fantastic recordings will be taking on the role of the legendary, party rocker Jimi Hendrix.
All Is By My Side is the name of the project that is currently in pre-production featuring the Outkast leader. And after roles in the Outkast movie Idlewild and The Shield along with three other movies, this casting will prove to be his biggest contribution to any screen beyond his music videos.
Actual shooting for All Is By My Side is expected to begin in about three weeks and the period of time Andre’s role is set will be in 1966 when Jimi Hendrix released the album Are You Experienced.
