Attention, Hollywood powers that be: Lil' Yachty wants you to give him a chance.

TMZ caught up with the "Peek A Boo" rapper at LAX where he shared his plans to pursue acting and when he sees himself changing his now signature hairstyle, completely.

When asked if he would ever change his hair color, the 19-year-old revealed that he already has an age in mind for when he will not only change the color, but chop off his locs all at once.

"I'm trying to get into acting," he said. "That's what I'm trying to focus on this year, so maybe after, like, 23. It's a limit to everything. I'm not going to drag on braids forever. You've got to grow up and be mature... So, one day, not today."

Speaking more about his dream of acting, he highlighted two Hollywood power players that he's trying to get to check him out.

"Everybody needs to f**k with me, man," he said. "I'm super talented in all regions... Oprah, Denzel [Washington], Moonlight 2. F**k with me."
