The Rapper T.I. has revealed that he would rather be an Actor than a Rapper.
The Los Angeles Times has quoted the rapper as saying;
"I ain't made no money in movies yet, because of the fact that a movie usually takes about three or four months to film. At the time of American Gangster, I was getting $100,000 (£64,459) a show and doing four to five shows a week. And I only probably got $100,000 for American Gangster, something like that. But I didn't mind. I wanted to do it....I'd rather be acting full-time at 40 than rapping full-time at 40. I just think... it's more suited for a teenager than a 40-year-old. My values, principals, beliefs and things I consider important are worlds away from where they was (sic) when I just came in the game...Some people see me as a distinguished young gentleman entering into the next phase of manhood, and some people see me as a young drug dealer-slash-thug who has managed to make his way into the entertainment industry. It just depends on who you ask...."
It is also important to note that his recent film has top the box office, beating "The Last Exorcism" by just $150,000. As a result, TI was quoted as saying that there's a prequel in the works.
The rapper revealed the following to BET: "I just got off the phone with the director, writer, the head of Screen Gems and the label heads over at Sony...We are working not a sequel, but a prequel to tell the back story of the characters."
