Wu-Tang Clan-associated rapper cuts off penis, jumps off building in suicide attempt

Andre Johnson, an L.A.-based, Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated rapper, jumped off a second-story balcony Wednesday morning in an apparent suicide attempt after cutting off his own penis, TMZ is reporting.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ they responded to a call and found Johnson lying on the sidewalk at a North Hollywood apartment building critically injured. He is now at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The status of his penis is unknown.

Johnson, a.k.a. Christ Bearer, is a member of the duo Northstar, who were discovered by Wu-Tang’s RZA outside an L.A. radio station in 1998. The Wu-Tang producer took them on and provided beats for their 2004 debut, RZA Presents Northstar.

Johnson is also affiliated with other groups in the Wu empire, including West Coast Killa Beez. Just yesterday, he released this music video with Rugged Monk of Wu-group Black Knights.

CNN reports the severed penis was transported to the hospital. No word on whether it’s being reattached.
