Men And Women Of Hip-Hop Captured For Benefit Calendars

Keeping with the spirit of Tuesday's World's AIDS Day, and just in time for the holidays, comes the second annual "Men of Hip-Hop" calendar, proceeds of which will help to promote AIDS education.

For 1999, the franchise has expanded to include the "Women of Hip-Hop," who also have their own calendar featuring cleavage and belly buttons galore from some of the biggest names in the biz from Lauryn Hill and Aaliyah to Spinderella and Missy Elliott.

The calendars are available at Sam Goody and Virgin record stores, and can also be ordered online at www.hip-hopcalendar.com.

Sales of the calendars will benefit the International Black Women's Congress, which promotes AIDS education and awareness in its 22 chapters across the country.
