With three films under his belt, Mos is now looking to take on Broadway, according to his spokesperson. The rapper is currently in negotiations to play a lead role in the play "Top Dog/ Underdog."

Mos will star as Booth, a small-time hustler from a broken home who can't seem to get along with his seemingly hapless brother, Lincoln."Top Dog/ Underdog" had its first run last summer, with Don Cheadle and Jeffery Wright playing the leads.

On the silver screen, Mos can be seen in a small role as Billy Bob Thornton's mechanic in "Monster's Ball." The film is set to be in limited release on Dec. 26.

You can also catch Mos in "Showtime," which is scheduled for a spring release. The film stars Eddie Murphy and Robert De Niro as police officers in a reality-based TV show that centers around them catching bad guys. Info on Mos' character is not yet available.

The romantic comedy "Brown Sugar" puts the rapper alongside Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan and Method Man. Mos will play a cab driver who yearns to be a rapper.

Musically, a spokesperson for Mos� label, Rawkus, said the rapper is headed back in the studio at the top of the year to finish work with his rock group, Blackjack Johnson. The band's debut release should be in stores sometime next year.

Mos can also be seen on the small screen as the host of Russell Simmons' "Def Poetry Jam." The show airs every Friday night on HBO.
