Never for her I want better, homie in jail - dead that
Wait till he come home
You can see where his head's at

from Nas – Daughters Lyrics on Rap Genius


Nas instantly contradicts himself: he doesn’t want his daughter dating straight thugs, like him and to some degree his dad. For her he wants better, but he’ll wait for the kid to get home so he can see where his head’s at — whether his mind-state is good, or still that of a thug — and keep an eye on them — where his other head’s at.
