from GZA (Ft. Killah Priest) – Beneath the Surface Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

GZA maintains a fascination with the game of chess — a highly intellectual exploit that mirrors his approach to MCing. This is evidenced, among other places, on the cover art of GZA’s seminal album Liquid Swords. (Notice the chess board upon which the figures are fighting.)
