T.I. has revealed that he has no rivalry with fellow rappers who have turned to acting.
He has mixed his movie and TV roles after making his debut in ATL back in 2006 but is back on the big screen with his new movie Takers.
He joins an all star cast of Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Hayden Christensen, Matt Dillon and Zoe Saldana in a movie that follows a group of robbers who are trying to pull off a $20 million heist.
Speaking to The Press Association the rapper said: "I don't feel any. I don't feel any competition. I don't feel like I'm competing with anyone but myself.
"If anyone else does feel like that, it must suck to be them. But I don't feel like that."
And whilst working on the movie T.I. admits that he learnt a lot whilst working alongside The Wire actor Idris Elba.
"Idris is a phenomenal talent, an outstanding man. I learned a lot from his methods of acting and we hit it off personally as well as professionally.
"Everybody was humbled. Everybody was down to earth. I loved working with Idris as well as the rest of the crew."
Taker is released 17th September.
