Rocco Katastrophe on Working with Margaret Cho, Emotional Eating, and His Magazine, Original Plumbing

Ask Rocco Kayiatos, a.k.a. Katastrophe, a.k.a. Rocco Katastophe, what he does for a living and he'll tell you he's a rapper/producer/publisher/entertainer — all of which is true. Since the 2004 album Let's Fuck, Then Talk About My Problems, Rocco has been beloved across the country, especially in his native Bay Area. As he prepares for the release of “Eat Everything,” his song and video collaboration with the always-hilarious Margaret Cho — which you can watch after the jump — we spoke with the now-Brooklyn-based all-arounder to find out more about his up-and-coming fourth album, Second Hand Emotion, as well as his work on the hugely popular magazine for trans-males, Original Plumbing.

How did this collaboration with Margaret Cho come about?

Margaret and I met and became friends while she was in the process of finishing her first record, Cho Dependent. She liked my music and said she would be interested in collaborating in the future. So I kept that in mind, and this seemed like the right song.
