Mos expanded his portfolio with cartoon voiceover work. "Gangstalicious" is completely different from Mos' real life rap persona but he was funny.
Mos Def - Gangstalicious
Mos Def - Gabba
There aren't too many rappers who can bounce back from appearing on a children's show, but Mos is different. His role as Super Mr. Superhero on Yo Gabba Gabba even made adults want to watch. Don't front like you were just watching for the kids. We know the truth!
Mos Def - Dexter
We're convinced that Mos' role as Brother Sam in Dexter is his definitive role, which could possibly result in an Emmy or a future role that may land him an Oscar.
Mos Def - Cadillac
Recreating a celebrity in a biopic can make or break an actor's career. But Mos channeled his inner rhythm and blues and nailed Chuck Berry, even down to his infamous duck walk in 2008's Cadillac Records.
Mos Def Brown Sugar
Mos almost played himself in Brown Sugar because his character Cav, was a brash, witty rapper. Yet there was one aspect to his personality in the film that affected really well--shyness. Cav didn't know what to say to the ladies, which resulted in him acting sort of like a cute little boy with a crush. But we know he's not at a loss with the ladies in real life, so he gets props for the way he channeled a new personality trait on screen. Plus, it made us chuckle in the process.
