Should've been an all-star, I'm Crawford for Interscope
Em starting, 50 staring, Gaga, Game starting
And Will.I.Am and the Peas, the sixth man I am, y'all

from Wale – The Soup Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Wale is making a comparison between the rap game and basketball saying that he should be an All-Star, but he’s considered the Jamal Crawford of his record label. Jamal Crawford is a point guard for the Atlanta Hawks who comes off the bench and won the NBA’s 6th Man Award last season. Fellow labelmates Eminem, 50 Cent, Lady Gaga, Game, and Black Eyed Peas are the stars of the label and Wale feels that Interscope puts him behind them.
