Mos Def Nominated For An Emmy Award

Rap Renaissance man Mos Def has been nominated for an Emmy Award, an honor which is bestowed to the finest actors in the profession.

The rapper stands poised to win the Actor, Miniseries or a Movie category for his role in "Something the Lord Made," a series on HBO.

Mos played Vivien Thomas, an African-American man who was a pioneer in the field of heart surgery despite never attending medical school.

"This is the biggest role I've had in film to date," Mos said in a recent interview. "But, you know, I try not to think about that sort of thing...I just want to do the best work I can, and hopefully that helps tell the story in the best way and stays true to the spirit and the dignity of the story and the people in it."

The nomination pits Mos against Antonio Banderas ("And Starring Pancho Villa As Himself”), Al Pacino ("Angels in America"), and James Brolin, who starred in Showtime’s "The Reagans."

Mos’s amigo Dave Chappelle was also nominated for an Emmy for best Variety, Music or Comedy Series. "Chappelle's Show," which is on Comedy Central will do battle with the highly regarded "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Show No. 8037," "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," “Late Show With David Letterman," and "Saturday Night Live."

As for Mos, the rapper has been rumored to be recording his second solo album and has possibly scrapped the long-awaited rock album with his band Jack Johnson.
