Get A Glimpse Of The Jimi Hendrix Hear My Train A Comin’ Documentary (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Jimi Hendrix was a guitar god. The master of Blues, Rock and Psychedelia all in one has been the subject of many books in films. Outside of the prospects of OutKast’s Andre 3000 playing the Washington state native in a biopic, Jimi’s ties to Hip-Hop run deep. The music of Hendrix prompted samples on such hits as The Pharcyde’s “Passin’ Me By,” Digital Underground’s “The Way We Swing,” and The Beastie Boys’ aptly-titled “Jimmy James.”

In preparations for Hear My Train A Comin’, PBS premiered a two-minute trailer of the film looking Jimi’s life, technical genius, and place in history. This is absolutely something worth watching.

As a bonus beat, check out J-Zone’s Jimi Hendrix inspired mixtape, Experienced! from 2006.
