How EKKSTACY Beat Writer’s Block to Make His Best Album

Pop anti-hero EKKSTACY finds his aggressive voice on his new album, 'misery.' He breaks down his journey through writer's block for Audiomack World.

Knox Fortune, who produced six tracks on iiiDrops, including "Girls @" and "Money & Bitches," is one of several producers working with Purp on the first release.
