The last time we “The Plug Pdx” checked in on Iakopo he just dropped his popular single, “Switch Up” released on all platforms and is yet another critical and commercial success. But that wasn’t enough for the talented artist. March 2020 not even a month later he came out with the new record “Diploma” and that is already a huge success.
Iakopo says this has been a year to remember and truly learn from despite the crisis and pandemic of the coronavirus he has experienced. Iakopo states that “this year has been a true struggle with not being able to do shows, we had to improvise as a artist, shows is the win for us because we get paid and we get to embrace the crowds and meet new people which open doors for more networks”
