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.

Eschewing his usual route of animated, lighthearted lead singles, "Walk On Water" is a very sentimental ballad. Em's poignant, reflective lyrics and Beyoncé's soulful chorus point to RƎVIVAL being a more mature work from the legendary MC.

"Walk On Water," produced by Rick Rubin, is Em's first official release since "Campaign Speech," a seven-minute freestyle that hit the web in October 2016.

In addition to RƎVIVAL, which is slated for release on Friday, November 17, Eminem's fingerprints will also be found on forthcoming releases from three of his newest Shady Records signees: Westside Gunn & Conway and Boogie
