Katastrophe

Biography

Just your average female-to-male trans-man spoken-word-artist-turned-"emo-hop"-MC, Katastrophe (aka Rocco Kayiatos) got his start as a stanza-spitting wunderkind in the Bay Area's slam poetry circuit. After a stint as a teenage teacher, mentor and performer with the nonprofit literary organization Youth Speaks, Kayiatos appeared in the PBS documentary Poetic License, toured with acclaimed spoken-word troupe Sister Spit, and co-composed the soundtrack for lesbian porn film Sugar High Glitter City. And, really, after that, what was left but hip-hop? So Kayiatos started crafting rhymes that spoke to his experiences as a queer kid, a female-to-male trans-man, and a disillusioned young person living in the dystopian belly of America, releasing the work on his debut album Let's F*ck, Then Talk about My Problems, released on homo-hop legend Juba Kalamka's (of Deep Dickollective) Sugar Truck Records.
