André 3000 spent some time on “The Late Show with David Letterman” last night (Thursday Oct 2nd) to continue his promo run in support of the Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side.
The OutKast rapper admitted to being nervous about taking on the role, and even had doubts while he was filming. “There was times when I was like, ‘Man, I think I’ve done more than I can handle,’” said Dre.
Andre spoke about playing Jimi and how he got to know about his music, “As a black kid, I grew up on rap and all that kind of stuff, so Hendrix was just like an image, like this wild, big-haired image,” he said. “I didn’t know anything about guitars either ’cause when I was coming up, you just didn’t see black people with guitars.”
Dave also calls our a “blooper” that had André laughing, check the video to see if you see it!
