November 4 [14:00 EDT] -- Lauryn Hill of the Fugees is among the musicians who have taped new anti-drug public service announcements for the "Musicians Assistance Program," supported by the record industry.
"Drugs, they destroy people," Hill warns in the PSA. "They destroy lives. They destroy families. You know, I'm soon to be a mother and these are things I think about. Please stay positive and stay away from the drugs, because there is no place positive you can get with that route." [2.8MB QuickTime]
Kiss, Art Alexakis of Everclear, and the late Sublime singer Brad Nowell's widow Troy have also taped PSAs for that campaign.
As we first reported last week, Hill will also host a benefit party Tuesday at New York's Museum of African Art, to help fund her Refugee Project, the non-profit youth empowerment group she launched last year. There, Hill will announce that the project's
board of trustees includes Puffy Combs, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Spike Lee, and Professor Cornell West.
