Bobby Ubangi, one of the subjects in the documentary We Fun, was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer nine months ago. It quickly spread to his brain, liver and bones, and he is near the end. died on July 2.

“I’m trying like hell to get donations for his burial. I left cancer out of the documentary because I felt it was wrong for the kind of film I was making, but I put together this short video for the CL story,” said WE FUN director Matthew Robinson.

“He has NO FAMILY other than his close friendships with Atlanta’s music community: Black Lips, King Khan, Deerhunter, et al. It’s one of those times where a hand-to-mouth arts community comes up a bit short, and fans, friends, well-wishers and supporters can make the difference,” Robinson said.

A benefit concert was held last night but more is needed.
