Johnson On Johnson Crime: Rapper affiliated with Wu-Tang Clan cuts off own penis in suicide attempt


Rapper Andre Johnson, who is a part of a group founded by members of the Wu-Tang Clan, has apparently cut off his penis and jumped off a Hollywood apartment building in a bizarre and tragic suicide attempt.

Johnson is better known as Andre Roxx and is a member of the Killa Bees, a Wu-Tang subset. He’s been rapping with the Wu for a few years now.

UPDATE: LA Weekly has some new background on the rapper


Bearer’s real name is Andre Johnson, and featured in the Wu-Tang affiliate group West Coast Wu-Tang Killa Bees. Initial reports claimed he also rapped under the name Andre Roxx, but that’s another rapper entirely – a North Carolina Wu-Tang affiliate apparently also named Andre Johnson.

Keeping track of all the worldwide Wu-Tang affiliates these days can be a bit confusing, but Christ Bearer does have legit Wu-Tang cred going back to the ’90s. While not one of the original nine members – or a frequent featured guest like Killah Priest or Cappadonna – Bearer was recruited when the Wu empire was at its most prominent, and was one of the first West Coast artists signed by the group’s leader, RZA.

According to TMZ:


A rapper affiliated with Wu-Tang Clan was rushed to the hospital early Wednesday after he cut off his penis and then jumped off a second story balcony in what police believe is a suicide attempt … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say … they were called to an apartment building in North Hollywood at around 1:00 AM and found Andre Johnson on the sidewalk critically injured.

Johnson was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. It’s unclear if doctor’s are attempting to reattach Johnson’s penis.

Johnson is a rapper who was in a group founded by members of Wu-Tang Clan.
