(Newser) TMZ is reporting on a grisly story out of North Hollywood, where police say rapper Andre Johnson cut off his own penis and then jumped from a second-story balcony in an apparent suicide attempt. Johnson, who raps under the name Christ Bearer, survived and is in the hospital, reports CNN. It was unclear whether doctors would be able to reattach the penis, but it was recovered from the scene. Northstar is in the Wu-Tang Clan's network of rap groups.
