So if her husband is a gangster can't be mad, I'll love him
Being judgmental of his daughter’s husband being a gangster would make him a hypocrite, as he proudly acknowledges his own thuggin'. Despite making himself a hypocrite, he says in the next line he wants better for her.
Nas is also saying that just because he is a gangster, that it doesn’t mean that he is a bad person. Because when Nas looks at himself, he sees that he is different from an average gangster, so he asks himself why he would judge this boy, because maybe this kid is also different, and maybe this kid is really a good person, in a bad place. So Nas realizes he can’t judge a book by its cover. Because if everyone thought like that, then Nas would never have made it, and he would just be a gangster.
