Andre Johnson, a rapper affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan, severed his penis and jumped from a Los Angeles apartment building early Wednesday, police said.
Johnson was seriously injured, but survived the fall from the second level of the building in North Hollywood, Los Angeles Police Sgt. William Mann said.
Johnson, along with his recovered penis, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was being treated, Mann said.
Details about what triggered the incident were not available.
Johnson has been a member of Northstar, a Long Beach, California, hip hop group that was part of the Wu-Tang Clan family, according to the Wu-Tang Clan website. He performs under the name Christ Bearer.
His recording credits include “When the Guns Come Out,” which was included on the soundtrack of the 2004 film “Blade: Trinity,” according to the Internet Movie Database.
This incident is both incredibly sad and incredibly bizarre. It would take a lot for a man to willingly chop off his own ding ding…before jumping from a building.
