It’s like I’m allergic
To Nonoxynol 9
Give it to you raw so you can feel it
Nonoxynol 9(N-9) is a controversial microbicide added to some condoms and also included in some lubricants. N-9 may reduce the chance of pregnancy but can actually increase the probability of catching a sexually transmitted disease (by stripping away protective layers of cells from the body). Nas say its like he’s allegic to it therefore he doesn’t use condoms. Which explains the next line, “give it to you raw”.
He also uses the term in a rap sense, giving us raw music, straight from the heart so that we, the listener, can feel the music.
