The DMV accent is a mixture of the Tidewater/Chesapeake dialect and a bit of the Baltimore accent (Not the Bawlmorese speech patterns though) coupled with the DC region's own distinct regional lingo. It's a very Mid-Atlantic accent in that it is neither all the way Northern but not all the Southern. The DMV accent is one of the most unique East Coast accents/dialects.

I'm not aware over rather or not I have an accent (Though some people think my voice sounds a little Southern whereas others think it's more on neutral/typical African American side), however I do speak the regional lingo and sometimes the dialect (Born & raised in the PG County side of the DC area).
