Rapper Kidd Creole, a founding member of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, was found guilty Wednesday in the fatal stabbing of a homeless man.
The 62-year-old rapper, whose real name is Nathaniel Glover, was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg, Jr., said in a statement.
The killing happened in 2017, when, prosecutors say, Glover fatally stabbed John Jolly, 55, with a steak knife after the two exchanged words.
Glover’s attorney argued that Glover acted in self-defense, The Associated Press reported. Bragg told jurors that Glover stabbed Jolly in anger because he thought Jolly was hitting on him.
