Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5 rapper Kidd Creole has pled not guilty to murdering a homeless man in Midtown, Manhattan earlier this month.
Reports DNAInfo New York:
Nathaniel Glover, 57 — who performed under the name Kidd Creole for the iconic hip-hop group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five — appeared in Supreme Court Wednesday to enter his plea while dressed in a white button-down shirt, dark slacks and a braided ponytail.
Glover told police he stabbed 55-year-old John Jolly because he was afraid of the man, who Glover claimed hit on him just before midnight on Aug. 1, authorities said. He used a knife he had attached to his forearm with rubber bands to stab Jolly twice in the chest twice near East 43rd Street and Lexington Avenue, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said they have more than 10 surveillance videos from the scene that they would send to Glover’s attorney, Patrick Watts.
A shank tied to his forearm with rubberbands? Creole is clearly from the old school.
The pioneering rapper is currently being held at Rikers Island. His lawyer is reportedly planning to request a bail hearing.
