Murder charge for rapper Kidd Creole

United States rap pioneer Kidd Creole, who helped found the band Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, was arrested by police in NY and charged with murder, police said Thursday.

Rapper Kidd Creole-whose real name is Nathaniel Glover-was returned to jail without bail on Thursday after an initial appearance in a Manhattan criminal court on a second-degree murder charge.

Assistant District Attorney Mark Dahl has reported that the altercation was ignited by Jolly continuously asking Glover "What's up?", to which the defendant took as an insinuation that he was homosexual and became enraged.

Reportedly, Jolly was drunk and made comments that Glover interpreted as hitting on him.

Jolly was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center where he died.

Dahl said the two men were a foot apart when Glover reached into his left sleeve and pulled out a steak knife that had been tied to his arm with a rubber band, leaving Jolly with two stab wounds to the chest.

Glover, meanwhile, "turned around and went to work" immediately after the stabbing, he said.

Grandmaster Flash, the first rap band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, was formed in the 1970s when rap and hip-hop were still in their early stages, and was considered a pioneer of the style.
