Rapper Cuts Off Own Penis, Jumps From North Hollywood Building: Police
A rapper linked to the Wu-Tang Clan was injured early Wednesday after he apparently severed his penis and jumped from a North Hollywood apartment, Los Angeles police said.
Andre Johnson, 40 — who raps under the moniker “Christ Bearer” in the duo Northstar — was discovered about 12:45 a.m. with a self-inflicted wound to his genitalia, LAPD Sgt. William Mann confirmed.
Mann said Johnson had jumped from a second-story building in the 4500 block of Colfax Avenue. Johnson was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Mann said, but the extent of his injuries was unknown.
It was not immediately clear what triggered Johnson’s actions, Mann said.
