LOS ANGELES, April 16 (UPI) -- Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated rapper Andre Johnson, aka Christ Bearer, cut off his own penis and jumped off a building Wednesday in an apparent suicide attempt.

Law enforcement tells TMZ that Johnson jumped from a second-story balcony after he cut off his own penis, and was discovered on the sidewalk around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning. The rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and is in critical condition.

Johnson and rapper Meko the Pharaoh perform as the rap group Northstar. The duo were discovered by Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, and collaborated with the musician on their 2004 album RZA Presents Northstar.

Johnson had released a music video with Rugged Monk of Wu-Tang-affiliated group Black Knights Tuesday.
