Andre “Christ Bearer” Johnson, a rapper in the California duo Northstar, was reportedly found on the sidewalk outside of his North Hollywood apartment after apparently jumping off a balcony early this morning (April 16) in a suicide attempt. 

He survived the fall, though Bearer is critically injured—currently recuperating at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Even more startling is that the report claims that he cut off his penis before jumping off the balcony.

Northstar is a relatively unheralded group—affiliated with New York’s iconic collective the Wu-Tang Clan—that made most of their noise in the early 2000s, when Wu-member and chief producer RZA functioned as their champion by producing the bulk of their debut album “Bobby Digital Presents Northstar” in 2004.
