A Lower East Side rapper once signed by Jay-Z was arrested for fatally stabbing a teenager during a brawl, cops said.

Roberto Guzman Rosado Jr. - better known as Tru Life - was busted Monday for the June 15 stabbings, which left a second victim in critical condition. The 33-year-old is jailed on charges of murder, assault and weapons possession, police said.

Rosado's brother, Marcus, also faces murder charges and surrendered Wednesday night at his lawyer's office, sources said.

The stabbings stemmed from a dispute at Club Pasha on W. 46th St., police sources said.

Rosado and his brother allegedly chased Jason Gray, 30, and Christopher Guerrero, 20, into a lobby on E. 26th St. Cops said the duo stabbed Guerrero in the stomach and Gray in the chest. Guerrero died of his wounds; Gray was critically injured.

Tru Life was signed to a six-figure deal in 2005 by Jay-Z, who was won over by Rosado's braggadocio. He has released a pair of albums, most recently last year's "Tru York."
