[Nas] Between the knight and the bishop
[AZ] Wanna knock ya rook;
In a game of chess, a bishop and a knight are two different pieces on the same level. However, a rook is significantly more useful: When Nas and AZ are presented with two opportunities, they’ll always find a third one, which is superior to the two original options.
Just to add to this: this is also a reference to a classic maneuver in chess, where the bishop and knight work together to fork the rook, giving the player a major advantage (knock ya rook)
