Almost two full years after Andre 3000 first talked to us about his role in the new Jimi Hendrix biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side, the film finally has an official trailer. We’ve already seen a brief clip of Dre interacting with co-star Imogen Poots, and heard details of six-hour guitar practices, but now we can get a wider sense of what he’s bringing to the role.

There’s the requisite shredding sprinkled throughout the trailer, but director John Ridley (who won an Oscar last year for 12 Years a Slave) mostly uses the clip as a means of playing up the film’s philosophical discourse. Watch the trailer above and catch Jimi: All Is By My Side in theaters on September 26.
