That's not a country black accent, sounds pretty standard to me. This is a country black accent:

I'm black and I have a southern accent. It's your environment/surroundings/peers have a great influence on the way you talk.

Washington D.C is situated between the North and South almost right in between, therefore you get the northerners and southerners mixing in one city.
