J. Esco aka Alpha Beatz
The Alpha Knight known as Alpha Beatz was born and raised in Brooklyn New York in the Flatbush area where life in the big apple wasn't so simple. Alpha Beatz also known as J Esco grew up on Church Avenue where a few of his friends by the ages of 11 and 12 started to rhyme after the rise of his musical heroes Nas, Mobb Deep,Busta Rhymes,The L.O.X., Jay-Z, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre,The Notorious B.I.G.,and 50 Cent who Esco favors the most developed his own styles of rapid fire and quick witted rhyme schemes. Turmoil and anguish and the loss of certain friends on his block forced him to move to the northwest area of Washington State. Very different from his attuned style of sound and ambiance Alpha Beatz stayed very true to his musical east coast style of rhymes. At the age of 16 he harnessed a mixed fusion style of production of his own called Future Hop a mix of old school east coast sound with a mix of southern but futuristic style of beats. He soon adopted a name for his electronic styles of beats and rhymes calling him by his own name of just his first initial and half his last name stating that he wanted be as real as the streets he's come from. Also calling himself Crook City name after the nickname for Brooklyn (Crooklyn) but cut in half representing his the only home he's ever known. Producing a vast array of R&B and futuristic Hip Hop tracks Alpha Beatz continues to make a name for himself as a producer and rapper. Now helping mold the underground music scene of Tacoma Washington he hopes to help break the silence and help push the very talented Tacoma artists finally get their shine. It was at one of the Alliance Battles beat battles that earn him a spot on one of Washingtons premiere indie labels Nu Empire Music Group.
