Part of the legendary group, Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five, has been taken into custody and charged with murder. Police reports indicate The Kidd Creole (standing far left) has been arrested and charged with the stabbing death of a homeless man.
"The rapper used a small knife to stab the man 2 times in the chest and once in the head Tuesday night in Midtown. The man allegedly called Kidd Creole a gay slur.
The homeless man -- identified as 55-year-old John Jolly -- died at Bellevue Hospital.
Cops say the 57-year-old rapper was taken into custody Wednesday. They used surveillance footage to identify Creole, and believe his motive was an angry reaction to the gay slur.
The Kidd Creole, whose real name is Nathaniel Glover Jr., was seen on video stabbing the man whom authorities say lived at a homeless shelter and was a level two sex offender. There is no word yet on a potential bond or if Glover has secured legal representation.
