We’re posting this story not to sensationalize what happened, but to point out the sad reality we see in the news every day.  Friends of this rapper who were with in at the time, claim no drug use was involved.

You can never know everything about a person to prevent them from doing harm to themselves or others. 

Andre Johnson, a rapper who worked with members of the group Wu-Tang Clan cut off his penis and jumped from a second floor balcony in an apparent suicide attempt.

Johnson was seriously injured, but survived the fall from the second level of the building in North Hollywood, Los Angeles Police Sgt. William Mann said.

Johnson, along with his recovered penis, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was being treated, Mann said.

Details about what triggered the incident were not available.

Johnson has been a member of Northstar, a Long Beach, California, hip hop group that was part of the Wu-Tang Clan family, according to the Wu-Tang Clan website. He performs under the name Christ Bearer.

Andre’s penis was not able to be reattached by doctors who were treating him at the hospital, but the rapper is lucky just to be alive.

Additionally, other rappers were present when Andre jumped, and they stated that there were no drugs on the scene. They cited a possible mental issue as the reason for why Andree tried to kill himself.

Whether or not drugs were involved, it was obvious this brother had some other issues that were either ignored or not diagnosed.
