Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and GZA are set to play against Twitch streamers Nate Hill and iamBrandon at the upcoming Hennessy Presents: Make Your Move chess tournament.

Today, all four opponents will compete against each other in a series of rounds until one remains standing. The finalist will be placed in a final match against the first Black Chess Grandmaster, Maurice Ashley. Ashley is spotlighted in Hennessy’s latest Wild Rabbit V.S campaign which centers on the theme of pushing the limits of one’s own potential.

The live chess-for-charity event (in celebration of National Chess Day) kicks off at 4 pm ET on Chess.com’s Twitch channel. Nas and A$AP Ferg are set to make special appearances.

All proceeds from the event will go to Unfinished Business, Hennessy’s initiative — in partnership with One Hundred Black Men of New York, the Asian American Business Development Center, and the Hispanic Federation — providing grants for Black, Latinx, and Asian-American owners of small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
