Distraught Rapper Does the Unthinkable Before Jumping Off Building

Something had clearly gone terribly wrong in the world of Andre Johnson. The rap star, who goes by Christ Bearer and is a protege of the iconic Wu-Tang Clan, was rushed to the hospital after severing his own penis, then jumping off the second-floor balcony of his apartment building. But that's not even the worst of it.

Shockingly, after hitting the ground, Johnson was initially able to get on his feet. However, later paramedics would find him lying in a pool of his own blood. He was rushed to the hospital, and once found, his member was taken there as well. Doctors tried to reattach it but couldn't. What an absolutely devastating turn for any young man.

Neighbors are completely surprised by the situation, claiming that no one in the apartment was doing any hardcore drugs that would have led to this kind of tragic episode. Clearly the aspiring superstar is struggling with something, and presumably, this cry for help will get him the counsel and treatment that he needs. But the sad fact is he will have to live with a permanent reminder of what he did.

And if he does want to recoup his rap career, that could be difficult for him. The entire world knows that he did this horrible, unimaginable thing to himself. I am sure many fans are still asking why. It's just a reminder that we can never judge a book by its cover. In this case, here was a guy working hard at his career having some measure of success. But beneath that creative, energetic surface may have been some serious issues.

What do you think pushes someone to do something like this?

Mental illness and/or drugs.... I cannot think of any other reason(s) Very sad indeed and he has my prayers especially since the future risk of suicide is high.... May he get the help he needs.

Unfortunately I think this guy will continue to try to end his life until he succeeds. I just don't think he'll be able to handle living the rest of his life with no penis and especially since the whole world knows about it.

I've seen some seriously disgusting and disturbing comments on other sites about this man's actions. It's nice to NOT see any of that here. My heart goes out to the this man. Mental illness is not funny. I hope he can get the help that he needs.

I read an article that the friends that were with him swear it wasn't drugs and they feel he has mental issues too. Sad but I agree with SoJaided. He will succeed eventually.

Unfortunately, these situations are becoming more and more common. What nobody has identified here is that all participants in these tragedies have not been circumsized.Mothers, please do what is right for your sons so that we can hopefully cut down on some of these occurrences!!

WTF are you talking about Kathrine? This story has absolutely nothing to do with circumcision.

Wait a second ... does this mean Wu Tang Clan just became No Tang Clan??

Are they sure that HE severed his own penis? Almost sounds like a Lorena Bobbit deal....
