4 stabbed during after-party for 'Notorious' film

NEW YORK (AP) - Police say four men were stabbed at a New York City nightclub advertising the "official" after-party for the film premiere of "Notorious" about rapper Biggie Smalls.

Police said Saturday a 21-year-old victim stabbed numerous times was in critical condition at Brookdale Hospital. Three other who were stabbed were in stable condition.

The Djumbala club is in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn about three miles from the slain rapper's home. Police did not immediately release further information.

Smalls was born Christopher Wallace and also used the stage name "Notorious B.I.G."

His debut CD, 1994's "Ready to Die," helped re-energize the East Coast rap scene. He was killed in Los Angeles in 1997.
