The Tumblr streets have been buzzing since its conception, but this week will see the debut of JIMI: All Is By My Side—a Jimi Hendrix biopic penned by 12 Years a Slave writer and Academy Award winner John Ridley. Recently screened via the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, this film gives southern rapper Andre Benjamin his first biographical role. According to a Rolling Stone article covering the film’s release in Toronto last year, JIMI covers just one year of the guitarist’s life (1966-1967) before he was catapulted from backup guitarist to signed artist. Unfortunately, the film will not feature any of Jimi’s original music by request of the Jimi Hendrix estate.
