NEW YORK (AP) -- Sean "Diddy" Combs is becoming a prosecutor -- at least on television.
CBS says the rapper has agreed to a two-episode appearance on "CSI: Miami."
The network says Combs will portray a prosecutor who doesn't get along with police Lt. Horatio Caine, played by David Caruso.
CBS said Tuesday that Combs' episodes will probably air in mid- to late winter.
Combs drew praise for his role in the ABC movie "A Raisin in the Sun."
Another rap artist, Nelly, has had a recurring role this season in "CSI: New York."
