Andre Johnson, a rapper affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan, cut off his penis before leaping from a building, according to reports.
Johnson jumped off the second story of a North Hollywood building in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday after mutilating himself with a knife, police confirmed to E! News. Johnson was severely injured but survived his injuries. He and his severed penis were taken to Cedars Sinai hospital after what is believed to have been a suicide attempt. He's currently being treated there.
No word on reasons why Johnson may have acted as he did.
Johnson also reportedly goes by the rap name Christ Bearer. A music video featuring Christ Bearer and Rugged Monk for a song titled "Oooh!" went up on YouTube just yesterday, hours before he cut off his genitalia and attempted suicide.
