Sideways niggas keep tryin' to make them Bishop moves
Now concentrate until you get the Juice
Opportunists (like the producer in the story) are always trying to move up in the world, but in all the wrong ways.“Sideways niggas” refers to the rook chess piece because it can only move side to side and straight up & down, and they’re trying to move like a bishop (only move diagonally).
Also, the bishop line is a reference to the oft-mentioned movie “Juice” in which Pac plays a character named Bishop.
Concentrate? Get it? Juices are made from concentrate? haha
