Rapper makes dramatic suicide attempt 

A rapper affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan reportedly severed his own penis before jumping off a second-story balcony in an alleged suicide attempt.

Andre Johnson, who’s also known as Christ Bearer, was found in critical condition outside a North Hollywood apartment building just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, TMZ and the New York Daily News report.

Police confirmed to the Daily News that the victim was found with self-inflicted injuries. They initially confirmed the injuries were to his testicles and penis before retracting that confirmation.

His neighbors, who were allegedly there when Johnson jumped, told TMZ the rapper was not on “any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing.”

Johnson is part of the group Northstar, which was discovered by Wu-Tang producer and rapper RZA in 1998.
