I've always wondered how there ended up being two Kid(d) Creoles in NYC at roughly the same time. Which came first? Is "kid creole" a well known reference to something that I'm not aware of? According to Wikipedia, Darnell chose the name in reference to the Elvis movie King Creole. Did Kidd Creole choose the name for the same reason? If so, why the fascination with a middling Elvis Presley movie amongst the African-American community in NYC back at the end of the 70s/beginning of the 80s?

At any rate, it's sad to see one of the Furious Five in this sort of story.
