Eminem's manager, Paul Rosenberg, has reportedly responded to reports made yesterday (August 21) which suggest the rapper's highly-anticipated Relapse 2 has been issued a release date.

Rosenberg reportedly spoke on the rumored November 17th release date for Em's Relapse follow-up.

According to Em's longtime manager and business associate Paul Rosenberg, there is no truth to the November 17 date whatsoever, despite the fact that has it posted on its website. (XXLMag)

A release date for the album landed online this week via Amazon's United Kingdom website.

The reports ignited further speculation of the project dropping a day after the UK's release date.

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

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)

Despite Rosenberg's denial, Amazon's UK website still has Relapse 2 scheduled to drop Monday, November 16th.
