Last month, nearly five years after his initial arrest, rapper the Kidd Creole, born Nathaniel Glover, was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter in the stabbing death of John Jolly, a homeless man whose approach Glover had interpreted as a sexual advance. Glover — a founding member of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, and the brother of Furious Five member Melle Mel — has now been sentenced. According to TMZ, he’s facing 16 years in state prison, followed by five years of post-release supervision — not necessarily a life sentence for a 62-year-old, but close to it.
