US Rapper Kidd Creole jailed for 16 years for killing homeless man

Rapper Kidd Creole, who was a founding member of Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for stabbing a homeless man to death.

The 62-year-old rapper, born Nathaniel Glover, was found guilty of manslaughter last month for the death of John Jolly, who was stabbed twice in the chest with a steak knife on a New York city street in August 2017.

Prosecutors accused Glover of stabbing Mr Jolly after becoming enraged because he thought Mr Jolly was gay and was making a pass at him.
