A Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated rapper who cut off his own penis in a drug-fueled delirium last April is rebutting reports that surgeons re-attached his private part.
“Doctors didn’t rattach it, but I definitely have some penis left,” Northstar rapper Christ Bearer, whose real name is Andre Johnson, told the media.
“I always say a penis is a penis. And the sensation is still there. I definitely still get extremely aroused if I see a beautiful woman,” he continued. “That being said, I definitely believe sex is for mortals, and I am god. So this is a blessing, not a curse.”
Johnson, 41, incredulously stated that he was not trying to commit suicide despite the fact that after cut off his own organ, he hurled himself off the second-story balcony of his condo in North Hollywood section of Los Angeles on April 16.
“By no means was I trying to kill myself. I was under the influence of PCP. It’s a drug that I had stopped doing for years, but I just got back from Ohio and got back into that lifestyle for a few days. It definitely was not wise,” he told The New York Daily News.
Johnson, instead, told the newspaper he was immersed in studies about monks and vasectomies and was extremely high when he took the knife to his genitals and jumped.
“I was lucky I was only on the second floor. If I was any higher, it would have been a tragedy. The height didn’t make any difference to me. I wasn’t aware of the height,” he said. “I was so happy to wake up in the hospital.”
Johnson probably figures he doesn’t need his whole organ for reproductive purposes anymore. He welcomed a new daughter, Kennedy, into the world just two weeks after his bizarre breakdown and hospitalization at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills.
The rapper also has two older daughters, Lana, 2, and Lauren, 8.
“I’m very optimistic about the future,” he told The News. “I just had a daughter, and I plan to be part of her life for a long time.”
Johnson said he occupies his time these days writing music and hopes to sign with an agent soon to start doing some stand up comedy.
Wu Tang Clan leader RZA produced Northstar’s well-received 2004 debut album and featured the Long Beach group on the Wu Tang Killa Bees albums.
“I’m excited about getting back. I’m looking forward to what will occur,” Johnson said.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” he added. “My message is about peace and harmony and love, everybody getting along.”
