And I'm playin' ball with a chess board, nigga; Bobby Fischer

from Wale – Change Up Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Bobby Fischer was a chess grandmaster and the 11th world chess champion.

This may also be an allusion to the phrase from the movie Training Day, “This shit’s chess, it ain’t checkers!” This means something is more complex and strategic than one might think.
