Angster of love who's unable to look girls in their face

from Sage Francis – Gunz Yo Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a play on the phrase “gangster of love,” which has been the title of songs by everyone from Johnny Guitar Watson to the Geto Boyz.

A line of “emo-rap” here, speaking of Sage’s fear of (being rejected by) women and his inability to make eye contact with them. His gun here is a guard against any rejection by women: if he overcompensates his lack of confidence (his small penis) with a large gun and feels masculine, maybe he can look women in their face. Sage has taken a gender politics course or two.
