The highly anticipated new album from EminemRevival, could be released in just a matter of weeks, and we think we know exactly when.

Props to HipHopDX for first reporting on the potential release date, as well as giving us a few reasons why. So, without keeping you waiting too long, here are the 5 reasons we think Em's new album will drop on November 17.


5. According to the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit rapper's fake drug ad is set to end on November 22. Makes sense that a promotion for an album would stop a few days after the album is released, right? Speaking of the fake drug ad, it apparently also served to reveal the album's title. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out below.


4. Back in August, Hits Daily Double said that Eminem's album would drop in the final quarter of 2017, even speculating then that fans and the label were thinking November 17. 


3. It was actually revealed early in October by producer Denaun Porter that the album was finished, not that that makes much of a difference in its release. Slim isn't new to the game, so as a hip hop vet there's no reason to think anything he creates would get held back -- when it's ready, it's ready.


2. As we told you earlier this week, Eminem has been confirmed as the musical guest on the November 18 episode of Saturday Night Live -- featuring Chance the Rapper taking on the hosting duties. Makes a ton of sense for Em to debut some new stuff on SNL. 


1. The last two Eminem albums to drop in November were 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which dropped on November 5 and 2004's Encore, which dropped on November 12. So what does this mean? Well, as any good conspiracy theorist can see, 12 + 5 = 17 AND 2013 + 2004 = 2017! Boom!
