Hendrix is played by Andre Benjamin (“Idlewild”) of Outkast fame. He stars alongside Hayley Atwell and Imogen Poots.

André Lauren Benjamin, unlike his Outkast buddy Big Boi, has never released a solo album. But over the weekend, Bet executive Stephen Hill tweeted the following, presumably from an interview or regular ol' conversation: "Me: hey what's up? You got the movie coming,right? Andre 3000: yeah...and I got a solo album coming top of the year." The movie in question is All Is by My Side, André's Jimi Hendrix biopic, which actually isn't allowed to feature any official Hendrix music. So it stands to reason that Three Stacks wrote some tracks for the film and then got a studio groove going and wrote a bunch more, right? It also stands to reason that he's just amassed a bunch of songs since Outkast's Idlewild dropped in 2006 and sees no reason not to use the movie's arrival as extra publicity for an album. Alas, Billboard hit up André's publicist »

"We talk and communicate and we still come to each other's homes, our kids play together," Big Boi told HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski. "When you've been doing music for so long together, you don't have to be joined hip to hip. I know that's what the world wants to see right now, but we're just trying to do our own thing right now."
Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Outkast, whose members got their start together at an Atlanta-area high school in 1992.
