What is the world coming to – I hope this was not done for publicity but rapper Christ Bearer cuts off his penis, and allegedly attempts suicide by jumping off his second-story balcony.

Rapper Christ Bearer was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles early Wednesday morning after the apparent suicide attempt. Christ Bearer, who was born Andre Johnson, is a member of the rap duo Northstar, which is affiliated with Wu-Tang Clan. Wu-Tang member RZA discovered the group in 1998.

Two members of another group Johnson works with, Black Knights, live in the same North Hollywood, Calif., apartment building where Johnson was found, but said they were not taking “any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing,” TMZ reported.

A lot details on Johnson’s apparent suicide attempt are still uncertain but I will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
