An NYPD spokesman told PIX11 Glover and the man argued before Glover allegedly pulled out an object and stabbed him twice in the chest and one time in the stomach. The man was found on the sidewalk and later died in the hospital.

Sources told WNBC in New York that Glover confessed to police.

Glover made his name in the 1970s as part of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, one of the most influential rap groups of all time.
