Creole, 62, whose real name is Nathaniel Glover, was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, according to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg Jr.
According to reports, Glover fatally stabbed 55-year-old, John Jolly, with a steak knife after the two exchanged words. The rapper’s attorney stated that he acted in self-defense because the victim attacked him first.
