So here's the Devil's alpha to the beta

from Ras Kass – Nature of the Threat Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Alpha and beta are stages of development.

The alpha stage of whites — referred to here as “the Devil” — began with their mutation in Africa, which caused them to be cast out of the continent.

The beta stage of the race saw them develop into “Europeans,” so named because Europe became their home.

In lines 3-8, Ras Kass is talking about the alpha stage of white development. “So here’s the Devil’s alpha to the beta” means he is about to begin discussing their “beta stage” for the rest of the song.
