Rapper Juelz Santana's birthday celebrations in a New York club ended in chaos on Monday (22Feb10) after a fight broke out when a partygoer tried to gain access to the VIP section without permission.
The hip-hop star turned 27 last Thursday (18Feb10) and his celebrations continued this week, when he partied with friends and fans at Manhattan hotspot M2 Ultralounge.
But trouble ensued when one man tried to slip into the VIP area - prompting a group of males from the rapper's cordoned off section to pounce on the intruder and beat him to the ground.
In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, Santana is shown watching the fight from the safety of the VIP section, while fellow rapper Maino is seen getting involved in the scuffle, although he does not throw a punch.
The unidentified man eventually managed to free himself from his attackers and leave the club, although it is not known if he suffered any injuries.
Other celebrity guests at Santana's bash included Lil' Kim, Snoop Dogg and singer Ashanti.
