Marshall Mathers LP 2 release date has been confirmed for November 5, according to an announcement during the MTV Video Music Awards 2013.
Eminem's new album is one of the most eagerly anticipated albums scheduled for the coming months, and fans will be buzzing with excitement following Sunday night's announcement.
Eminem gave details of his eighth solo album during a brief commercial for Beats by Dre, which took place during the MTV VMAs 2013.
Eminem made the announcement that his new album would be titled Marshall Mathers LP 2 and that it would have a release date of November 5.
The album will be the eagerly anticipated sequel to the Marshall Mathers LP which was released in 2000.
The commercial also gave a preview from the new album, revealing a track playing with the lyrics, "Let's take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch/ I'm about to bloody this track up, everybody get back/ That's why my pen needs a pad because my rhymes' on the rag."
The MTV VMAs 2013 took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night, and prior to the event kicking off Eminem dropped a big hint about his new album.
The rapper took to Instagram to post a photo of the show's logo and a caption that read, "Guess who's REALLY back? #VMAs."
One track has already been released from the new Marshal Mathers LP 2 album. The song is entitled "Survival," and that also was featured on a commercial, but this time for the upcoming game "Call of Duty: Ghosts."
"Survival" features vocals from singer Skylar Grey, who Eminem has collaborated with on the Dr. Dre song "I Need a Doctor."
The confirmation of the release date finally puts to bed rumors that have been circulating for months about the eagerly anticipated album.
Previously Paul Rosenberg, president of Shady Records, had said, "He's been working on it for some time. It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when. We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up."
