Evidence of Eminem's Relapse 2 release date has hit the net and the highly anticipated album is reportedly slated to reach the public before the year is out.

While details are still scarce regarding the project's content, a release date for the album landed online this week via Amazon's United Kingdom website.

According to additional reports, the project will drop a day later in the United States.

Is Eminem's Relapse 2 hitting stores November 17th? Relapse 2 showed up on Amazon UK with a November 16th release date which would make the US release November 17th because the US usually gets albums one day after the UK. This would also make a lot of sense because November 17th is a Tuesday and most stores begin to sell albums on Tuesdays. (Your Audio Fix)

Em previously announced his aim to release Relapse 2 earlier this year.

"A lot of people were expecting Relapse to drop last year," Eminem said in a statement. "I was one of them. Then Dre and I went back in the studio in September for a few days, and that turned into six months. We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre. Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff." (Press Release)

Em's Relapse album dropped last May and has become the biggest debut of 2009.

Grammy-winning rapper Eminem has made his triumphant return to hip-hop with the No. 1 album of the year and in the country this week. According to Nielsen Soundscan, Slim Shady's comeback project Relapse debuted on the charts with 609,400 copies after seven days in stores. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
