******* One of the artistic influences mentioned by our guest will not be listed , because the hosts of Black N Animated do not agree with the things this artist has done. We recognize that someone can be influenced by an artist work and not the artist themselves, but we do not wish to offend by giving this person any more of a platform by sharing their work along with the other two artists. ********
