Stabbing Melee at a ‘Notorious ‘After-Party

A little like life imitating art …

Four men were stabbed at a New York nightclub during an after-party of the Notorious premiere, a biopic about rapper Biggie Smalls, The Associated Press reports.

Police told AP Saturday a 21-year-old victim was stabbed numerous times and was in critical condition at Brookdale Hospital. Three others were stable.

The Djumbala club is in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn. Police did not immediately release further information.

While the party had been promoted as the “official” after-party, Notorious distributor, Fox Searchlight, said it was not related.

The film takes a look at how Smalls, born Christopher Wallace, rose to fame, taking the stage name “Notorious B.I.G.” It also delves into the feud Smalls had with West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur, which ended in both their tragic deaths. Smalls was killed in Los Angeles in 1997.
