Rapper Andre Johnson, who cut off his genitals bit by bit before jumping off a balcony in a suicide attempt, was high on PCP, according to reports.

Johnson survived, but his genitals did not -- doctors were unable to reattach them in surgery. He remains in stable overall condition.

According to E!, Johnson used a steak knife to cut off the tip of his penis first, then removed the testicles and the remainder of his genitals.

When police arrived, Johnson was standing on the second-floor balcony. Police asked him to come down to talk to them, so he said, "OK," and jumped.

Johnson performs under the name Christ Bearer with the group Northstar.
