The Kidd Creole (born Nathaniel Glover) of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five was arrested after he allegedly stabbed a homeless man multiple times in Manhattan, New York near midnight last Tuesday

According to AFH Glover, 57, was taken into custody by police in his native borough and current residence of the Bronx the following Wednesday morning. Creole confessed to the authorities that he was involved in the incident, and subsequently he was charged with murder.

The Kidd Creole is the brother of The Furious Five’s de facto lead MC, Grandmaster Melle Mel. The seminal group formed in the late 1970s and were signed to Rap’s earliest iconic record label Sugar Hill Records in 1980. Before Sugar Hill, they released their first single Superrappin’ in 1979. Other hit records from the group’s catalog include White Lines, New York, New York, The Birthday Party, and Freedom. In the early 1980s, tensions broke the group into two factions. Creole and his brother separated, as the detained MC stayed with Flash (in a group under the DJ’s name). They signed with Elektra and released three albums as an offshoot of the seminal act. Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
