Last week, rapper Andre Johnson, aka Christ Bearer, cut off his own penis and jumped from a two-story balcony in what police called a failed suicide attempt. Now it is being reported that Bearer was under the influence of PCP, often called Angel Dust, when the mutilation happened.
Over the weekend E! News also revealed more gruesome details from the incident, reporting that Johnson used a serrated steak knife to cut off his penis before jumping. The rapper reportedly cut off the tip of his penis before removing his testicles and the remainder of his genitalia.
Johnson is still being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was rushed to after his attempted suicide.
Though the Wu-Tang Clan initially distanced themselves from Johnson, days later RZA told XXL that “Christ Bearer is a part of the West Coast Killa Beez, a bunch of young guys that was signed to our company 10 years ago.”
“Wu-Tang, we’re from the East Coast. But we did invest in some young guys to try and help any hood,” he told the mag. “He was a guy from the hood that we gave a shot. I don’t make music with him nowadays.”
RZA continued by saying, “I feel sad for his family first and foremost; I know he has children. I thought he was a smarter guy than a guy who would do something crazy like that.”
