Just a day after releasing a music video, several new sources are reporting that a rapper by the name of Christ Bearer is in a Los Angeles hospital after severing his penis and jumping off of a building in an apparent suicide attempt.
Christ Bearer, whose real name is Andre Johnson, was critically injured when he fell from the second floor of a building in North Hollywood.
According to Los Angeles Police Sgt. William Mann, both Johnson and his severed penis were taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Johnson is a member of Northstar, a Long Beach-based duo that is loosely affiliated with the Wu Tang Clan. He was discovered by the RZA in 1998, and years later the Wu Tang maestro released, RZA Presents Northstar on the group’s label.
Spin reports that Johnson’s friends and neighbors said the suicide attempt was unexpected and that the rapper “wasn’t on any hard drugs” at the time of the incident.
