Many say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Never has this been more true than with rap. The classic rap albums that featured cover art put on display the realities and often times the dream world that rappers lived in. Steady Cam is a rapper looking to prove that his lyric video "Take A Picture" is a masterpiece amongst the critics.
Take a Picture visual is everything you would expect from a lyric video. Words, pictures, and of course the music. But lets get to the music. Steady Cam uses a fast paced syllable packed flow that could be compared to Eminem. Yet Steady Cam is still able to stand out by embracing this and making it his own. Throughout the record Steady Cam makes multiple camera metaphors which coincide nicely with the song's title. With this method he is able to rap about many different topics and use these references to help tie everything back together and stay on topic. Take a Picture is a visual track meaning that the real video will either enhance or break this song. Steady Cam shows a cleverness in his use of metaphors as well as shows his mastery to control the mic as he is able to switch up the flow multiple times throughout the record. This makes this a good single that is both strategic because of the marketing possibilities as well as a safe introduction to a broader audience.
