With the film out now, André 3000 stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday (Oct. 2) in support of the Jimi Hendrix biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side.
During the interview, the rapper/actor admitted to being nervous about 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.
He also admitted tha he didn’t discover the rocker until his late teens/early 20s, after watching Apocalypse Now.
“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,” Andre said. “I didn’t know anything about guitars either ’cause when I was coming up, you just didn’t see black people with guitars.”
