Reversing Tomorrow. While you may not comprehend exactly what that title means, the message inside Brinson’s ninth solo album is (and remains) abundantly clear: The creator of the universe loves us so much that He provides a miraculous plan of salvation through belief in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, His one and only son.
The attractive 11-cut package (Have you seen that cover art?!?) finds the rapper/label owner flipping between modern and classic hip hop sounds to cover a variety of topics.
The song “Aquadrip” taps into both the author’s affinity for comic book culture and the superhero mythology of the Marine Marvel. Its trap-heavy track blends an ocean’s worth of water references into a believer’s anthem about the confidence the Holy Spirit brings to one’s identity.
“Mind Clear” showcases the artist’s increasing proficiency as a lyricist and even includes a pleasant Easter egg that will be familiar to long-time listeners of Christian hip hop. Later, Brinson uses a soothing piano loop on “Talk To ‘Em” to straightforwardly address the intersection of faith and mental health.
Elsewhere, “No Rewind” employs a super-catchy chorus to urge the audience to live a life without regrets. Even the non-music skits and interludes emphasize the value Brinson places on a life in service to his Savior.
“It’s been a while since I’ve had this much fun writing and recording an album. I believe my joy can be felt throughout the project and pray it helps listeners connect with the message on a deeper level as a result,” Brinson said.
Reversing Tomorrow will be available on all digital music platforms Thursday April 25 & IAmBrinson.com
