Reports claim he got into a argument with John Jolly, 55, at the corner of E. 44th St & Third Avenue before the stabbing. After Kidd Creole fled, the homeless man was found by police who thought he was just too drunk to stand but then found several stab wounds. He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital and died.
Jolly was an ex-con who served six years for rape and has been arrested three times for sexual assault. Kidd Creole thought the man was hitting on him according to NY Post.
Creole is one of the founding members of legendary hip-hop group Grandmaster flash and the Furious 5.
