At least my conscience is clear, I'm no longer steering you wrong
Ain't nothing wrong with baguettes after you get a home

“At least my conscience is clear, I’m no longer steering you wrong”
Saying how he’s now matured and his message is to educate the young'ns trying to be like him to go about it in a responsible/patient manner.
