    Artist: DJ Muggs vs. GZA
    Album: Grandmasters
    Song: Queen's Gambit
    Typed by: Cno Evil

    [GZA]
    She dated jolly green GIANTS, that, flew on JETS
    An A-list actress, who was never walked off sets
    She loved stuffed animals, especially BEARS
    Was a role model, like a CARDINAL to our peers
    A PATRIOTIC tomboy, like Mary Ellen from The Waltons
    A former lifeguard, who had the skills of a DOLPHIN
    When I met her, she was in drama school and wore BENGALS
    Drove a BRONCO, and she was far from star spangled
    Had basic skills, and worked part time in mills
    Raised buffalo's, cause she was behind them BILLS
    Had a man who always roared like LION
    A domestic violent cat, tackled the girl and kept her crying
    Couldn't care, she was losing her hair, from depression
    She was in the air, and there was some room for interceptions
    I told her to stay strong, not to be ashamed
    You're a "ten-i-see", you just need to TITAN your game
    Her ancestors were CHIEFS, who ran with running deer
    On the sail with the SEAHAWKS, who battled the BUCCANEERS
    The REDSKIN garments, was suede coat liners
    Held rare coins, frequently sought from gold miners
    They were hard working warriors, we call over timers
    Shot plenty arrows at COWBOYS and 49ERS
    Her interesting background, but quite unusual
    A great force grip, but out of bounds for a musical
    She told me to call her, if I came to town
    I started TEXAN her, soon as my plane had touchdown
    Holding my luggage, in the hand that revealed the bad scars
    She pulled up at arrivals, driving the JAGUAR
    Her BROWN skin was soft, her legs beautifully shaven
    Her house was fly, sitting on the roof, was a RAVEN
    As we entered, I heard laughter
    She walked into a large living room, I went after her
    There was two of her, girlfriends, playing chess like they were VIKINGS
    Militant as PANTHERS, they're resemblance was striking
    Had on thongs, high heels, and belts that was garter
    Energized like phones that just came off the CHARGER
    I introduced myself to gain yardage
    Cuz anything less then smooth, would of been straight up garbage
    The shorter one met me, when I had a sky pager
    Thought I rolled with robbers, STEELERS and panty RAIDERS
    She took fruit from the orange bowl, it was in season
    One of them said she loved the juice and kept squeezing
    I knew that I was gonna get, wined and dined
    It would of been a penalty, not to pass the scrimmage line
    Now I laid back and relaxed, waiting for the kick-off
    One removed the lip gloss, like she was bout to lick all
    She caressed me, with fingertips soft as velvet
    Dying for me to PACKER, as she stroked my helmet
    And I was thinking these girls was SAINTS
    But it was first and ten, and there was extra walls to paint
    Before you know it, I had all three in a huddle
    Buckin' like a COLT, before I released them puddles
    They spread EAGLES like wide receivers
    As I RAM them in the endzone, and they became true believers

    [Outro: movie sample]
    I be liking chess
    Cuz chess is crazy, right there, that's the ultimate
    It's like a great hobby right there, playing chess
    The board, the pieces, the squares, the movement
    You know, war, capturing, thinking, strategy
    Planning, music, it's hip-hop, and sports
    It's life, it's reality


    Props to Cno and Chamberdartz

    He didnt use the Falcons cuz of a premonition he had about Michael Vick slaughtering pitbulls and decided not to use the Falcons.
