Hip hop pioneer Kidd Creole charged with murder in fatal stabbing of homeless man on Midtown street: police
Hip hop pioneer Kidd Creole has been charged with murder after fatally stabbing a homeless ex-con he thought was hitting on him on a Midtown street Tuesday night, police and sources said.
Creole, whose real name is Nathaniel Glover, was arrested Wednesday and accused of killing John Jolly, 55, at E. 44th St. and Third Ave.
Glover, 57, was one of the members of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, a hip hop group formed in the South Bronx in the 1970s.
The one-time trailblazing emcee works near the scene of the killing as a handyman and security guard and was on his way to his job, authorities said.
