...And everyone that listened to any of my music has the same reaction, "no profanity in it, but it still has that gritty feel." I like that because that let's me know I'm accomplishing what I wanted in creating music with no profanity.”

However, according to Black, ” I have my own style”‘, which is rightly so as his music is known to strike a chord, thus making it a fulfilling yet exciting experience for his audience.
