Rapper who cut off his penis becomes stand-up comedian

Christ Bearer – aka Andre Johnson – was in hip-hop group Northstar

The rapper who cut off his own penis earlier this year has become a stand-up comedian.

Andre Johnson, otherwise known as Christ Bearer, was a member of the hip-hop group Northstar. In April he cut off his own penis and then jumped from a second floor balcony in North Hollywood, Los Angeles. He was found in a critical state on the pavement and was rushed to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center hospital. Johnson’s penis was reattached with ‘full functionality’ during a successful operation.

After saying that he wanted to appear in porn following the incident, Johnson has now embarked upon a stand-up comedy career, reports TMZ. He has apparently only performed two shows, but has been studying at various Los Angeles clubs for the past few months.

At the time of the penis-severing incident, the rapper was said to be affiliated with Wu-Tang Clan as his group was discovered by RZA in 1998 and in 2004 released ‘Bobby Digital Presents Northstar’, which was produced by RZA under an alias. Wu-Tang Clan however denied any affiliation with Johnson. A post on Wutangclan.com, which was later deleted, apparently read: “Parental Advisory : Don’t Believe The HYPE. This Mother Fucker Ain’t Got Shit to do with The WUTANG Brand.”
