RZA Describes Christ Bearer's Attempted Suicide: "That S**t Sound Mythical"

Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA is just as in the dark about rapper Christ Bearer’s attempted suicide as the rest of the world. “It’s sad that it’s Wu-Tang affiliated,” RZA told XXLMag.com, “It’s like dirty press in a way. I want to know what the f*** moved him to do those things.”

Christ Bearer, real name Andre Johnson, was discovered on a sidewalk in North Hollywood. He had allegedly cut off his own penis before jumping off a balcony in what is assumed to be an attempted suicide. Doctors were unable to reattach the rapper’s penis, but according to TMZ he is in a stable condition. Two of his rap co-collaborators, who live in the same building and were there during the incident, said that they hadn't been taking any drugs that could have influenced such an action.

Johnson had been released recently from jail, and had not produced music with Wu-Tang for quite some time. RZA explains “Christ Bearer is a part of the West Coast Killa Beez, a bunch of young guys that was signed to our company 10 years ago. Wu-Tang, we’re from the East Coast. But we did invest in some young guys to try and help any ‘hood. He was a guy from the ‘hood that we gave a shot. I don’t make music with him nowadays.”

RZA continued that he could hardly believe it when he heard the news about Johnson, “what he did - is incredible. That s**t sound mythical.”
