So, stop with the nonsense, like he conscious
I'm just awake dog, I'm doing great dog

from Yasiin Bey – Close Edge Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The media and fans often tend to label certain rappers as conscious, leaving them a “prisoner of conscious”. One who cant rap about worldly things thereafter.

Mos is saying he isn’t conscious he just knows his reality, and others should too.
