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.

Interestingly, this means even DAMN.’s opening skit “BLOOD.” is certified Gold, which speaks to Kendrick Lamar’s ability to craft a compelling and lean album cover to cover. The certification of “BLOOD.” also speaks to the truth that while playlists and bloated albums may reign supreme, if you make a strong enough body of work, the listeners will come. Better yet, they will stay.

In the great words of the man himself, “Get it all, you deserve it, Kendrick.”
