Rapper T.I. is shifting his focus from the music industry to Hollywood because he aspires to be an Academy Award winner within the next 10 years.

The hip-hop star has landed small roles in films such as Ridley Scott's American Gangster, and takes on a more significant part in the new crime thriller Takers.

But T.I. admits he is building up his acting portfolio – because he wants to make his mark once he's in his 30's like Jay-Z or Eminem and he's intent on claiming gold at Tinseltown's most revered ceremony in the next decade.

The 29 year old tells Complex magazine, "I want to have an Oscar by then (40). 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."
