The Kidd Creole of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five has been charged with murder after fatally stabbing a man in Midtown Manhattan on August 2. Exact charges have not been revealed but Kidd (real name Nathaniel Glover) was arrested on one count of second-degree murder. From NY Post:
Glover, 57, who is being held without bail, did not appear for the brief proceeding in Manhattan Criminal Court.
The Bronx native allegedly became irate after he thought derelict John Jolly, 55, had made a pass at him Aug. 1 at E. 43rd St. and Third Avenue, according to prosecutors.
Jolly, a convicted sex offender, was leaning against a wall, swigging a beer when he allegedly said, “What’s up?” to Glover.
After a brief exchange, the rapper allegedly pulled out a steak knife and stabbed Jolly twice in the chest, according to the criminal complaint.
