Update: According to TMZ, doctors were unable to reattach Andre Johnson's severed penis. 

Update: Rugged Monk and Crisis Tha Sharpshooter from the group Black Knights confirm that it was Christ Bearer who cut off his penis and jumped off the balcony earlier today. They live in the same apartment building and rushed downstairs after they heard him screaming. TMZ caught up with them today. 

Andre Johnson, a Wu-Tang affiliated rapper, was rushed Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. earlier today after cutting off his penis and jumping off a second story balcony, according to TMZ.

Gawker is reporting that Andre Johnson is actually Christ Bearer of Northstar and a post on Facebook from DJ Ready Cee, an underground New York DJ, confirms the same. Additionally, Discogs lists Christ Bearer's real name as Andre Johnson. The duo Northstar, (Christ Bearer and Meko), were discovered outside an L.A. radio station in 1998 by RZA which lead to their album RZA Presents Northstar in 2004.

TMZ states that police believe it was a suicide attempt, and that he was critically injured. We've reached out and will update with more information as it becomes available.
