Rap veteran Nathaniel "Kidd Creole" Glover's neighbors are speaking. People from Kidd's New York community have reacted to buzz about him getting nabbed on a murder charge.
Despite the crime's seriousness, one of Kidd's neighbors admitted they wouldn't imagine him killing someone.
"He had no issues," says one building resident who asked to remain anonymous but has known Glover for two decades. "He's the one guy you can say, 'You can't say nothing bad about him.' When I saw [the police] bring him out [of the building], my heart dropped. He's been here so long and I can't explain how nice he is. He was like one of my kids. I'm still shocked." (Rolling Stone)
Yesterday, reports surfaced about the former Furious Five co-founder's legal drama.
The 57-year-old Bronxite, whose real name is Nathaniel Glover, was arrested at his home in Mt. Hope on Wednesday after allegedly killing the unidentified individual on Tuesday night, according to police sources. He had gotten into a shouting match with the 55-year-old man at the corner of E. 44th St. and Third Avenue before the stabbing occurred, the sources said. (Fox News)
Details have also surfaced on why the Furious Five co-founder possibly took the man's life.
The one-time trailblazing emcee works near the scene of the killing as a handyman and security guard and was on his way to his job, authorities said. He had a run-in with Jolly, who was drunk, a police source said. "They had no prior relationship," the source said. "They had words. Things got out of hand. It was some sort of diss." Glover thought Jolly - a convicted rapist and sex offender - was hitting on him, another source said. (New York Daily News)
Prior to the arrest, there were plans for a Furious Five performance later this month.
