Feeling a bit camera shy



Jacob Scott Estep., (born October 12, 1992), better known by his stage name Alpha Tvylore, is a true rap poet and songwriter.


Short Synopsis:

After seriously pursuing his musical career for the past three years and overcoming a series of personal setbacks, the release of Birth of a Villain is a much welcomed milestone. Having released a mixtape titled “Token” in 2013 and performing with Taylor Gang, Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, Yelawolf, DJ Quick, and Warren G, “Birth of a Villain” takes Alpha Tvylore’s lyrical verse to the next level.

Writing all his own work, Alpha has grown as a true rap poet, escalating from his early work of rhyme to hard reality, embracing the negative that he has been faced with to create a positive outlet with which people can relate.



American rapper and songwriter Alpha Tvylore was born Jacob Taylor Scott on October 12, 1992, in Columbus, Ohio. Raised by his mother, he knew little of his biological father. He met his biological father only once when he was eight. His father was later deported to Trinidad due to his criminal record.. Alpha Tvylore’s grandmother played a significant role in his upbringing and he carries the fondest memories of her. At the age of two, his mother married and he was legally adopted by his stepfather but never really felt accepted by him. Once adopted, Jacob Taylor Scott was renamed Jacob Scott Estep.

Alpha witnessed drugs and violence among the row houses of his childhood. He can remember times when the family had to go without water and electricity because they couldn’t pay the bills. He recalls walking with his mother to the local gas station while pushing his brother’s stroller so that they could use the restroom. The environment and his circumstances left him with a desire for wanting more.

Determined to keep him away from the harsh atmosphere of the public schools and the influences that followed, Alpha’s mother moved the family to the suburbs before middle school. This was a big adjustment for Alpha since his look didn’t match the predominantly white suburb. It was at this point that Alpha became heavily involved in sports and found a focus in football. He saw football as his “ticket” to success.

In 2012, Alpha was offered a partial scholarship to Texas A&M, but decided instead to attend Fullerton Junior College outside of Los Angeles. He was driven and focused on a professional career, but later that year his dream was pulled out from underneath him. After suffering numerous concussions and nearly dying as a result of an enlarged heart caused by the “status quo” performance enhancing substance he was using, he realized that he would have to give up his dream of playing football professionally.

At this point he turned to rap. It was an overwhelming change. He no longer had a coach to support him or a clear direction to guide him.

Shortly after this time came the news of his aunt’s death, followed by his grandmother’s death, and the hospitalization of a sibling. This compiled with losing his scholarship and means of living, Alpha hit bottom, living out of his car and couch surfing. He couldn’t turn the lyrics of his life off. He needed to write to feel a sense of sanity. While his early rap was focused on rhyme and rhythm, it later evolved into autobiographical self-expression. Embracing the anger over his personal experiences has provided him the peace to move on.

Music had always been present during his childhood with fond memories of his mother’s constant play of Lauryn Hill. She had such influence on Alpha that she actually adorns his arm in ink. Alpha has great respect for the pioneers of rap, the artists of the late 80’s and early 90’s. He admires the authenticity of the artists writing and expression through their own lyrics.

While many of the producers Alpha met in Los Angeles have tried to tell him to sound like this or that artist, Alpha has held true to himself to develop and maintain his own unique style and flow. Alpha Tvylore is a true rap poet and songwriter. In 2013, Alpha released a mixed tape titled “Token” and performed with Gang, Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, Yelawolf, DJ Quick, and Warren G. His moniker ‘Alpha’ is derived after his desire to establish himself as a leader, while Tvylore (with the inverted ‘a’) is taken from his given middle name.

Alpha Tvylore’s debut album “Birth of a Villain” takes his lyrical verse to the next level. Originally due to release in August of 2015, Alpha postponed the release of “Birth of a Villain” so that he could record and include two additional songs he wrote during the mastering of the original track list, feeling that these new songs were his strongest yet.
