Alice was produced on the famed SP1200 that Dean loves both because of the challenge (10 second sample time) and the sound (rugged and gritty). This time Dean chose a funky blues guitar, a driving back beat, climbing bassline, and solid claps to go along with what sounds like Alice in moaning in climax throughout the track. David Banner tells two stories over the course of 2 verses. In the first verse, Alice is a woman locked up emotionally in a world shaded by past sexual abuse. Like a few, Alice believes her power lies in exploiting her sexuality to control men, opening her legs in exchange for them opening their wallets. Banner acknowledges her beauty “baby you hot like hades”, but then looks beyond the surface and retorts “I know he broke your trust, I know you cried for help, your mother thought you was lying, left you all by yourself, come here and take my hand, don’t want to be your man, just want to help you find your place off in this wonderland.” The second verse starts in with a nod to Outkast’s “Art of Storytellin” this time with Heather Humper hoppin’ in & out of cars sleepin’ with stars. When Banner tries to offer an alternative, Heather replies: “Can’t save me ni&&a cause my soul been dead.” The track then closes with what might be the best line of the track: “Sometimes your dreams don’t come true, because God knew they’d be a nightmare.” Enjoy the song and feel free to share.
