And I ain't trying to be accepted, but it's hectic
When you try to sell you records and your record label don't respect it
Now all these promotional stunts gets me emotional
Not hospitable, I'll never recoup so it's not profitable
And I can end up as white trash living in a trailer park

from R.A. The Rugged Man – Every Record Label Sucks Dick Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He doesn’t give a fuck about being accepted. But he admits that it’s hard when your own record label doesn’t respect your work. R.A. talks about this on “A Star is Born”, how Jive didn’t respect him at all, treated him like a beast, made him be on the same label as many pop singers and wanted him to give them a commercial run hit.

Recoupment is a process in the music industry where a record label can claim an advance provided to an artist back from that artist. R.A.’s album didn’t sell and he can’t afford to pay back the label advance, so the label isn’t getting any money out of his record. He’d rather end up being broke and homeless.
