So mister funkmaster, pump the Bee Gees

from Wyclef Jean (Ft. John Forte & Pras) – We Trying To Stay Alive Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Funkmaster is probably a reference to Funkmaster Flex

Clef wants the DJ to play the Bee Gees because this tune borrows its music (and title) from the band’s 1977 monster hit “Stayin' Alive”, which appeared on the soundtrack of the smash disco movie Saturday Night Fever. This song’s video is an homage to the movie
