Oh this is lovely to wake up to on a Thursday!
Photos of Eminem have been doing the rounds, and it's leading to huge speculation online that some new music might not be too far away.
Back in October of last year, Marshall Mathers confirmed that he was working on a new album, with no indication as to when it would drop:

In a photo posted to Instagram by Eminem's long-term manager Paul Rosenberg, he say's 'it's been a long time':

The speculation online is that the writing on Eminem's right hand says 'April 9th', which people believe is the date we can expect some new material.
However, a theory I have is that the '#7elevenseries' in the above Instagram post could be key here.
For those who don't know, 7-Eleven is a supermarket chain in the US, but I think the hashtag has a hidden meaning, which people are still working out.
If you write out the name of the supermarket in date format, you get 7/11, which in the US means the 11th of July.
So, the two dates is '9th April' or '11th July'. Here's hoping it's sooner rather than later.
