It's all a chess game, choose sides, the best remains
True lies, vibes die when bums infest the game
AZ uses a game of chess as a metaphor for the rap game. In chess you choose sides of the board, while in the rap game you might choose between East Coast and West Coast hip-hop due to their rivalry. Either way the strongest most capable pieces on the board remain (the king is of course the exception) or the truest most lyrical emcee. AZ knows of these fake and less capable rappers who ruin the game.
