'Bout as uncomfortable as an untouchable touching you

from Lupe Fiasco – Hurt Me Soul Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Untouchables,” or Dalits, have historically made up the lowest social class in India. They traditionally worked in jobs regarded in Hindu thought as ritually impure, such as butchery, leatherwork, and toilet and sewer cleaning. They were segregated for centuries because their touch was thought to carry a spiritual and social pollution

Listening to Jay-Z was bothering him because he felt polluted, as though an untouchable had touched him
