Ah, I'm not more or less conscious
Than rappers rapping 'bout them strippers up on a pole, popping

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Evan Roman & Macklemore) – A Wake Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mack is alluding to the fact that he believes, at the foundation, rap is simply stories of what you see in your environment. Or as Wiz said, “they say all I rap about is bitches and champagne, you would too if every night you saw the same thing”. If you rap about your reality, you are a conscious rapper in, atleast, the most basic sense
