– on why he left NWA

“Honestly man, these past few days and seeing what’s been posted, videos and all that, I think I made the best decision I’ve could’ve made,” he said.

“Here’s the thing – if you get comfortable, you don’t move forward sometimes,” Starks said flat out. “I wouldn’t say I got comfortable cause I was still trying to get more out of it, but it was too familiar for me so I wanted to get out of it. I understand the aspect of this. I understand, I wasn’t fired, I wasn’t furloughed. I consciously made the effort not to. NWA wanted to, we just mutually couldn’t agree on stuff. I get the aspect of it, but if I’m not taking a risk, then what am I really doing? It’s exciting, yes, and it’s scary, yes but I have been by myself and had to work so hard just by myself in anything that I’ve done that all I have is myself and my support of myself.

“I have to constantly push myself and that’s how I’ve gotten to the place where I’m at. And if I don’t believe in myself to make a decision like that, then I’m really wasting my time, I’m wasting your time, I’m wasting everybody’s time. So I made the decision. I’ve slept on it, made the decision, I understand what’s at risk here and sure, I may have to struggle a bit, but the reward and the payoff is worth that to me. And honestly at the end of this day, when I wake up and when I go to sleep, there’s one person I see in the mirror and there’s only one person I have to justify anything to and that’s myself. And I don’t have to expect Dick, Tom or Jane to understand why I did what I did…”

“It was very difficult, obviously, but looking at it now, I’m glad I did it and I sit in that, proud that I did that. And who knows? We don’t know what happens next. Things can change at a whim.”
