1980s Rap Pioneer The Kidd Creole Charged in Deadly Stabbing

Nathaniel Glover, aka The Kidd Creole of the pioneering rap group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, has been charged in the deadly stabbing of a homeless man in Midtown, Manhattan, law enforcement sources tell News 4 New York.

Glover, a 57-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, was arrested and charged with murder after being questioned at the 13th Precinct in Manhattan. He had been taken into custody at his home in the amount Hope section of the Bronx earlier on Wednesday. Police said he is “extremely remorseful.”

Glover confessed to stabbing the man, later identified as 55-year-old John Jolly, though a motivation for the killing has not been released, the sources said. He was walked from a police precinct Wednesday night in handcuffs.
