Rapper Kidd Creole — one of the founding members of the legendary hip-hop group, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5 — has been charged with murder for the stabbing of a homeless man who he thought was hitting on him in Midtown.

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 individual on Tuesday night, according to police sources.

Glover reportedly confessed to stabbing the homeless man and is expected in court later Thursday. But this isn’t Glover’s first brush with trouble in a career that started with a flash, before it fizzled.

He had gotten into a screaming match with the man — identified as 55-year-old John Jolly,

 a registered sex offender — at the corner of E. 44th St. and Third Avenue before the stabbing occurred, the sources said.

After the incident, Glover apparently fled and left Jolly, who was drunk, bleeding on the sidewalk.

Cops later found him and thought he was just too intoxicated to stand, but then noticed multiple stab wounds in his chest and rushed him to Bellevue Hospital — where he was pronounced dead.

A high-ranking police source told The Post that Jolly was an ex-con who did six years on rape charges.

He’s been arrested at least three times for sexual assault, the source said.

After being found by officers, Jolly refused to cooperate with police — and even declined to ID his killer or go to the hospital.

“I guess he didn’t think he was going to die,” the source said.

According to officials, Glover works in the area of Midtown where the murder occurred as a maintenance man and security guard.
Police sources said he thought the man was coming on to him.

The legendary lyricist rose to fame in the 1970s after forming Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5 with rappers Melle Mel, Keith Cowboy, Mr. Ness/Scorpio, Rahiem, and DJ Joseph Saddler, better known as Grandmaster Flash.

Their songs, “The Message” and “White Lines (Don’t Do It),” helped catapult the group to stardom in the ’80s and made them household names in the hip-hop world.

They would eventually break up, though, citing personal differences. The group briefly reunited in 1987 before eventually disbanding for good.

Flash and the Furious Five would go on to become the very first hip-hop group to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.

Over the years, Creole has tried to stay relevant by using social media to promote his shows. He tweets and posts pictures regularly — even popping a tribute to Keith Cowboy, who died in 1989, just before he was arrested on Wednesday.

“#RIP my legendary brother,” Creole tweeted at 3:02 p.m. “#Salute.”

BWF SPOTIFY PLAYLIST

How Can I Get On Spotify Playlist

One of the most important metrics to determine how successful an artist will be on Spotify is the number of times their music has been added to playlists. As Charles Alexander of Streaming Promotions says, Spotify’s algorithm is powered by “collaborative feedback,” a process of crowd-curation where millions of users teach Spotify (and their editorial team) what to notice out of a nearly endless catalog of music. Playlist activity provides proof that your songs are worthy of further attention.

Prominent playlists can also provide you with instant access to a huge number of new listeners and boost your streaming revenue alongside that engagement. Those new fans discover your music while passively listening to a playlist they’re interested in, and all those streams add up to earnings too. For instance, Spotify’s “Your Favorite Coffeehouse” playlist (curated by their in-house editorial team) has over 2 million followers. When CD Baby artist Perrin Lamb got a song placed on that playlist in 2015, he earned almost $60k from just that one song on the platform.

But how do you get your music onto a prominent Spotify playlist?

Like most things in the music business (and life when all is said in done) you don't simply appear one day and get a melody included on a major playlist like "New Music Friday." Though these sorts of playlists DO highlight music from unsigned craftsmen, you have to work your way there slowly and carefully, lay the preparation, and in the long run get the consideration of huge playlist keepers. This guide will layout a methodology that puts you and your melodies in a superior position to prevail on Spotify. In any case, in the first place, why concentrate on Spotify?

The gushing scene appears to augment each month, with Apple Music, Amazon Music Unlimited, Google Play, TIDAL, and numerous others vieing for audience members. In any case, Spotify, with its 40+ million paid endorsers and 100 million dynamic client accounts, is the unmistakable pioneer of the pack. They likewise have the glory of pioneering a trail for adapted music spilling. Put basically, accomplishment on that stage most importantly others will have the greatest effect on your music profession.
