Glover’s trial started this past Friday, and the pioneer is claiming self-defense in the matter. The hip-hop pioneer was reportedly on his way to his security job around midnight on August 1, 2017, when he was approached by a man named John Jolly approached him and said “what’s up?” Creole’s lawyer—Scottie Celestin spoke to the jury and said “Ladies and gentlemen, this is New York City. It’s 12 o’clock at night. Who’s saying ‘What’s up?’ to you with good intentions? His fear for his life was reasonable.” Along with that, Creole’s lawyer argued that Jolly didn’t pass away from stab wounds, but rather he passed away from a dose of a sedative called benzodiazepine given to him at the hospital.
