T.I.: "I'm Kicking 30 Down This Year..."
The rapper talks moving towards movies as he gets older...
T.I.has opened up about his future plans to step away from making albums, and refocus his career on acting.
Depsite Jay-Z hitting 40 and Eminem still going at 37, Tip thinks he'll be looking for more non-music opportunities as he gets older.
He told Complex Magazine: "I'm kicking 30 down this year, so it's about time to start thinking about an exit strategy. I'm not saying this is my last album or the next album is my last album, but I don't see myself rapping for 10 or 20 more years. It can be done, but at the same time, Jay-Z's method is for Jay. I ain't seen nobody else take that model and use it to their advantage.
“If I do rap at Eminem's current age, I'm taking away from all the other opportunities that I have. I want to have an Oscar by then. I want to have made my mark in film as a producer and actor by the time I'm Jay's or Eminem's age."
