Last year, the Daily Mail published leaked photos of Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side. With the film set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September, we now have the first official photo of the OutKast founder as the guitar legend.

The film, which began filming in June 2012 in Ireland, will focus on Hendrix's early years, from playing in small New York clubs to being discovered by the Animals' Chas Chandler and flown to London to begin work on his 1967 debut Are You Experienced?

Hendrix's estate have distanced themselves from the film and denied filmmakers the use of any of Hendrix's original music, forcing Andre to record covers of the Beatles, Muddy Waters and others to use in the film.
