We recently reported on Wu-Tang affiliate Andre “Christ Bearer” Johnson attempting suicide by cutting his penis off and jumping out of an apartment window. Days after the incident, Wu-Tang member, RZA has come forward to address the situation.
According to RZA, he is still trying to comprehend why someone would do such a thing and is curious to hear the whole story.
“Christ Bearer is a tragic story because it’s still the same situation: a guy we gave a chance to,” RZA says in an interview with XXL. “If I remember that deal back in the day, I remember they signed for, like, $150,000, a record deal from some young guys from Long Beach, Cali. He had a partner named Meko. I liked those guys. I liked what they stood for, young guys trying. I can’t wait to really hear the whole story. It’s sad that it’s Wu-Tang affiliated. It’s like dirty press in a way. I want to know what the fuck moved him to do those things.” (HipHopDX)
