Andre Roxx has showcased the goods, now he’s looking for a taker.
Roxx, the Wu-Tang Clan affiliated rapper who posted a picture of his penis earlier this month to refute media reports that he had cut it off, has announced that he’s on the singles market and considering offers for a romantic companion.
“I need a girlfriend,” Roxx tweeted on Sunday. “Now accepting applications.”
Roxx (real name: Marques Andre Johnson), who’s affiliated with hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan via membership in Killa Beez, sued TMZ Productions and others in March 2016, alleging that an April 2014 report claimed that Johnson “was rushed to the hospital early Wednesday after he cut off his penis and then jumped off a second story balcony.”

However, the libel suit contended, the rapper who committed the act of self-mutilation was actually another rapper affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan, Christ Bearer, who later said he was proud of the decision to cut off his own penis.
Earlier this month, Roxx’s lawsuit was dismissed after a judge ruled that the complaint should fall under Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations, which limits libel claims to a one-year window.
After the legal defeat, Johnson took to social media to offer photographic proof that his manhood was still intact.
“Case dismissed on a Technicality huh? OK so I guess there is no way I can maintain my dignity AND clear my name, so f-ck it. Here’s what you’ve all been waiting to see,” Roxx wrote. “Do me a favor and screen shot this post and send it to TMZ, BET, USA Today and all the other news outlets that decided to fight me for 3 years rather than simply issuing a retraction and clearing my name, and ask them why they couldn’t just operate under the principals of basic human decency and clear the name that they destroyed.”
The rapper later posted a video on Facebook in which he stated, “What I want everybody to realize is that I didn’t try to start a national conversation about my penis,”
Apparently, however, Roxx now seems open to a one-on-one chat with the right person.
