Akira The Don might be an accomplished and hard-slaving producer/rapper/arranger/blogger/notable feature of the musical internet, an esteemed man of letters, and possessed of the finest facial hair in Hackney Wick... but does he know anything about chess? The brilliant polymath Mr Chilly Gonzales doesn't think so, as you'll see when he raises a wry and bushy eyebrow at Akira's moves in a game of chess as they discuss, among other things, his new film, the jazz-chess spectacular Ivory Tower, which stars his old chums Peaches and Tiga.
