This is the latest full-length album from the hip-hop artist from Jacksonville, Florida. He is an ordained minister and one whom others respect for his encouragement, mentoring and love for God and others ("That Time I Won An Award"). Critics have been quick to acknowledge 'Reversing Tomorrow' as Brinson's best yet, as it mixes a God-fuelled perspective over mainly southern beats and sub-basslines, although "Mind Clear" shows his versatility over any style. Production levels are high and finished without being overly polished and features some unexpected samples and embellishments. From the starting gun of "Intro From The 9th Floor", Brinson declares, "Jesus is the only way" and challenges others to get back to their love for God. This challenge to others not to turn their back on God is not just a preach but a message from his heart ("Why Would I"). Brinson is also on it when it comes to social issues. The near old skool piano sounds on "Talk To Em" sees a timely message that "Jesus' name is my anti-depressant." Then the brilliant testimony track "I Wanna Believe" sees Brinson ask the hard questions on behalf of people - then come back with powerful answers. . . "It's about you. It's about him."
