Eminem has been looking more happy and healthy than we’ve seen him in quite some time. Shady did barely any promo work for his last three projects (two solo albums, one with Royce Da 5’9” as a part of Bad Meets Evil). A refreshed Em has been pushing his new album real heavy, though! The Marshall Mathers LP 2 drops on Nov. 5. In conjunction with the release, he’ll appear on SNL as the musical guest the weekend before.

Nov. 2 will be Eminem’s sixth appearance on the show. It’s all but certain that he’ll perform his current radio smash, Berzerk, while he may also spit to Rap God and/or Survival. Since the show is just days before the album’s release, he could always follow in the footsteps of other artists by debuting a new track as well.

Em has never hosted the show, but he’s contributed to sketches at previous appearances. There hasn’t been any mention of Shady showing off his acting chops but actress Kerry Washington will carry the load as the episode’s host.

Set your DVR’s now so ya don’t forget!
