So a couple days ago, Wu-Tang Clan affiliate & Northstar member Andre Johnson, who performs under the rapper name “Christ Bearer” cut his penis off then jumped off the second-story balcony of his apartment in a failed suicide attempt. Northstar was previously signed to Wu-Tang Productions back in the early 2000s. While speaking to XXL, the Wu’s leader, RZA, commented on the incident by saying:

“I feel sad for his family first and foremost; I know he has children. I thought he was a smarter guy than a guy who would do something crazy like that. But at the same time, he been in jail recently, he’s been in trouble. Maybe he’s mentally unstable. Maybe the mental health system should have took a look at him and said, ‘You know what? We got to hold on to this guy for a little longer. Because it’s not any sanity; even if you high, this shit don’t sound sane. This sounds more than high. It sound like mental problems or something that was bothering this man’s mind, and he needed help. It’s sad. I send my respect out to his family.”
