Rapper Christ Bearer, real name Andre Johnson, has come forward to explain why he chopped off his penis and jumped out of a balcony window.
Remember when sort-of-Wu Tang-member-but-kind-of-not rapper Andre Johnson AKA Christ Bearer cut off his johnson, whoops, sorry, penis, before roaming the streets naked and covered in blood? It was a pretty extreme time for all involved, particularly when RZA cut him off (no pun intended) from Wu Tang, explaining that they no longer make music with him.
RZA distanced Christ Bearer from Wu Tang after the incident
Well, Christ Bearer has come forward to explain why he did what he did. There's a pretty logical explanation, depending on your tolerance for drug induced mania. Andre Johnson, also known as Andre Roxx (we’re guessing he’s going to prefer Roxx to Johnson from now on) says that missing his two daughters, smoking a smidgen of marijuana (or a few ounces, give or take) and a book he’d read about monks and vasectomies were among the lethal mix of catalysts inspiring his decision.
After severing his penis with a steak knife, the rapper leaped from his apartment balcony and was discovered on a street corner in West Hollywood. The incident took place on April 16 and Johnson was said to have been high on the drug PCP at the time, which can cause hallucinations and confusion. No sh*t, Sherlock.
The rapper told TMZ that he had only been smoking marijuana (sure, and so had Amanda Bynes), explaining that he was lonely and feeling suicidal since a restraining order had been brought up against him to stop him from seeing his daughters. In a fortunate twist, doctors have actually managed to find an reattach the organ, which Johnson says is now almost back to pre-incident function. Surprisingly though, he may not be able to have any more children.
RZA says Johnson is a member of West Coast Killa Beez, not Wu Tang
Johnson has responded to RZA’s previous statements, distancing Wu Tang and Johnson, in which he said, “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 and ‘hood. He was a guy from the ‘hood that we gave a shot. I don’t make music with him nowadays.” Despite RZA’s comments, Johnson himself seems to disagree quite adamantly, telling TMZ, “I am the f——-g Wu Tang.” Well, that clears that up. RZA, the de facto leader of Wu Tang, must be misunderstood, definitely not the other way around.
