Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA has broken his silence regarding the bizarre story of rapper Andre Johnson, aka Christ Bearer, who this week cut off his own penis and jumped from a two-story balcony in what police called a failed suicide attempt.

“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,” RZA told XXL. “Wu-Tang, we’re from the East Coast.
