Spectated just to see if I'd get checkmated
People are just watching and waiting to watch his downfall
Checkmate — (in chess) happens when the king is under direct attack and cannot avoid being captured. At this point the player who’s king is in “check” loses.
Reference to the popular saying in hip hop culture This is chess, not checkers
