We finally get to hear what the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan has to say about the series of crazy events that happened with Andre Johnson, aka Christ Bearer. Johnson cut his penis off in his North Hollywood home and jumped off his second floor balcony on April 14.
RZA weighs in on Johnson’s situation saying that he just saw him not to long ago after a recent jail stint. XXL Magazine got a chance to catch up with RZA while he was out promoting his new movie Brick Mansions.
“Christ Bearer is a part of the West Coast Killa Beez, a bunch of young guys that was signed to our company 10 years ago. Wu-Tang, we’re from the East Coast. But we did invest in some young guys to try and help any hood. He was a guy from the hood that we gave a shot. I don’t make music with him nowadays. But the story — what he did — is incredible. That shit sound mythical.”
RZA goes on to say he feels sad for Johnson’s family and wonders about his mental health.
“I feel sad for his family first and foremost; I know he has children…I thought he was a smarter guy than a guy who would do something crazy like that. But at the same time, he been in jail recently, he’s been in trouble. Maybe he’s mentally unstable. Maybe the mental health system should have took a look at him and said, ‘You know what? We got to hold on to this guy for a little longer.’ Because it’s not any sanity; even if you high, this shit don’t sound sane. This sounds more than high. It sound like mental problems or something that was bothering this man’s mind, and he needed help. It’s sad. I send my respect out to his family.”
Andre is currently in stable condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Lets hope he gets the help he need. He said on his Facebook page is at “Peace” so lets hope he really is. He has no penis or balls so I don’t see how that is an option.
