Some of the worst paparazzis I've ever seen and I ever known
Put the worst on display so the world can see
And that's all they will ever show

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley) – Patience (Sabali) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The paparazzi have no mind of their own. Even though they take many pictures, they just make and increase the celebrity status of the worst human beings.

Another reading of these lines could be that the media (the paparazzi) only show the worst and most negative aspects of life in the third world.

This is a metaphor and doesn’t just apply to photographers but rather anyone who promotes and increases the power of bad things in the world.
