Wu-Tang Clan deny affiliation.

Rapper Andre Johnson, known for working with members of Wu-Tang Clan, has cut off his penis and jumped off a building in an apparent suicide attempt, according to reports by Gigwise.

TMZ claims that Northstar member Johnson was found in the street outside an apartment building in West Hollywood at 1am on Wednesday (16 April), before being taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital - where he is said to be in a critical condition.

Johnson, also known as Christ Bearer, is a member of the rap group Northstar, who were discovered by members of Wu-Tang Clan. Two members of a group Bearer collaborates who live with him claim to be there when the incident happened, when he cut off his penis and junped off the balcony "without warning" - adding that they were not on "any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing."

They add that they rushed downstairs and Christ Bearer had already jumped up and began screaming incoherently. A spokesman from the hospital refused to comment.

Meanwhile, Wu-Tang Clan have denied any affiliation with the rapper.

His group was discovered by RZA in 1998 and in 2004 released "Bobby Digital Presents Northstar," which was produced by RZA under an alias. However, Gawker reports that a post on wutangclan.com, which has since been deleted, apparently read: "Parental Advisory: Don't Believe the HYPE. This Mother F--ker Ain't Got Sh-t to do with the WUTANG Brand."

    His Avatar is of Devin Townsend's famous selfie, a true musical genius. You should look him up and listen to Ziltoid, Epicloud, Addicted. Some of his work in Strapping Young Lad is also excellent.
    Dude's gonna be so pissed if he survives this.
    Remember kids, it's only ok to joke about somone's suicide if they cut of their penis first.
    "any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing." No any hard drugs? So they were probably as high as ****.
    I've smoked my fair share of choice green from all over the world, and I have yet to find the joint that made me want to jump out a window let alone cut my freaking dick off. maybe I have a high tolerance...
    Not on any hard drugs? I'm going to highly doubt that unless he has some undiagnosed mental illness. Also, the person that wrote this up needs to take a ****ing english class.

    'Rapper Andre Johnson Cuts Off Penis And Jumps Off Building Before Being Mentioned on Ultimate-Guitar'
    "Can I see your ID sir?" "The name's Andre" "But it says here Andre Jo.." "I dont wanna talk about it"
    I hate how every site Ive seen so far takes the other 2 guys claims as truth and some dont even take the time to even research the subject at all. 1 of the other guys claims that he was reading a book in his room, heard something happen in the next room, saw that the dude fell off the building, and then went back to reading his book. I dont see any reason why anyone would take this as fact, especially when theres no evidence to say the guy tried to kill himself. cutting off your own cock isnt something any man would do in his right mind. sounds more like someone else cut it off and threw him out the window.
    "cutting off your own cock isnt something any man would do in his right mind." There's evidence that the guy has mental issues. So, he's not in his right mind.
    WoW! If your gonna jump off a building.... why go the added torture of cutting off your penis? Just jump off the building and land on your head! Why make it more difficult for? Not saying i encourage suicide because i don't, but "If" you are gonna attempt to do something stupid, atleast use some of your brain!
    I don't understand why this is on UG. This is for a rap site, not a guitar site. Sure it is music but this is ultimate guitar not ultimate rap.
    And apparently guitar sites can't discuss what happens to rappers... 'Cause, you know, there's no chance at all that certain UG'ers listen to rap.
    Well considering that most guitarists are rock/metal musicians and that guitar is prominent in rock and metal And that rap music features little to no guitar I don't see why the majority of people eon a guitar oriented site would have any interest in this other than a good laugh or WTF moment. Should I go to ultimate beats and rhymes.com for the latest on Yngwie or Steve Vai or carcass?
    I literally do not know a single rock or metal musician who is not also really into at least some rap and hip hop. Not one.
    Wu Tang Clan have released a few statements on the guy if you want to look that up.

    At least he didn't rape a baby. Rockers...
    If your talking about that loser from England ....that aint rock he played....
    hes not from here hes from wales thats like calling a canadian an american.
    Actually it's not because Wales and England both fall under the country Great Britain, calling a Irish man British would be like calling someone from the USA Canadian. However Canadians are Americans, and so are Colombians, Brazilians etc etc. American is, although commonly used to reference people from the states, not limited to only that. Therefor **** you.
    Canadians are considered North Americans you ****ing bellend. You don't call them that though, just like you don't call Russians 'Asians'.
    Literally had my mouse hovering about to downvote for being unnecessarily nitpicky until the last three words. Well done
    "The dude was so depressed that he ended his life, but hey, he made music from a genre that I didn't like. So hey, might as well criticize him anyway!"
    Second Rate
    Yes, because you're so morally superior to the rest of us that you didn't laugh a bit when you read that he not only felt the need to commit suicide, but also to slice his own penis off? Is it lonely up there on your pedestal?
    The penis part was funny, but that has nothing to do with my comment. I just don't like how this guy said "rappers" like all rappers are bad people, and a rock star has never done anything equally bad/worse. It's just the bias on this website that bothers me.
    Man I remember the time I cut off my penis and jumped from a hotel balcony! Never do that shit again! ...'80s...Miami Vice...Reagan...cocaine...wghdjkdlpfft...
    Just saw a new article that said he was on pcp. He also cut off his balls. And they failed to reattach his penis.
    Can't believe so many of you are making a joke about this. The man is obviously in a bad state of mind so why are you making light of it? If ever some of you get depression, tell me, i've got a joke ready. Then we'll see how you like it.
    As someone who's been dealing with some heavy depression for almost a straight year now, the jokes make me laugh, but I wouldn't really make a joke myself because I get it, when someone's desperate enough, any idea can seem good.
    How coincidental that you bring depression into this. Speaking as someone who is clinically depressed, I make jokes about bad things as a coping method. With that said, I've not seen many jokes as such, more just general confusion.
    That doesn't mean someone else would use it as a coping method too.
    Not as true as you'd think. When it comes down to it, nearly all comedy comes from suffering. Everything from the comedian on stage ranting about a terrible job all the way to tragedies like this or even bigger. It's all a method of escape.
    Joke away my friend. Anyone who cut's off their own dick is clearly on some hard drugs, and those are the type of people i have little pity for. I was clinically depressed for 3 years and i can't say that jumping off a building, yet alone cutting my dong off doesn't seem like a great idea.
    I think it's funny that his gangsta rap name is another name for Mother Mary.
    Now if all rap/pop/hiphop "artists" would do this, the world would be a much better place
    I feel bad whenever anyone thinks suicide is the answer to their troubles. He is REALLY gonna feel suicidal when we wakes up with no pe4nis!
    In the words of steel panther "Eminem can suck it, so can Dr. Dre They can suck each other just because they're gay They can suck a dick, they can lick a sack Everybody shout, Heavy metal's back" Death to all but metal!
    Obviously, he was making some dinner and mistook his willy for a cucumber. After realizing what he had done, he did what any man would think of doing.
    Ok, I don't usually complain about UG articles, but this one is a little beyond the pale to me- it has absolutely nothing to do with music, is more than a little sensationalistic, and frankly so gross that it makes my stomach churn. A little more journalistic selectivity and integrity would be much appreciated.

    It involves a musician, by default, that makes it music news. I highly doubt you would be complaining if the article was about a musician YOU like cutting off their wang.
    That story doesn't sound right. Honestly, I'd dig deeper and explore a potential murder if I were assigned to this case. But I'm not, so I can just whoever is investigates thoroughly.
