Kato, born Curtis Harper, is a 24 year old black male from Tampa, Fl. He hails from the unforgettable College Hill projects located in the heart of Hillsborough County.

Growing fast gave Kato a lot dreams and aspirations, one of which is to someday own a record company. With a new goal at hand Kato started to write lyrics daily knowing one day they would come to be good use.
