Paramedics rushed to the area and found the artist suffering from stab wounds, however they were unable to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Twisted party goers are said to have filmed the fight, with at least one recording the moment medical workers attempted to resuscitate the rapper before callously sharing the clip online, sparking fury on social media.  

No arrests have been made and the area around the party is still cordoned off, Met Police said, as they urged anyone with relevant footage to come forward.
