Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le is a 2016 American biographical television drama film that premiered on Lifetime on October 15, 2016. The film stars Rhyon Nicole Brown as Michel'le and Jamie Kennedy as N.W.A.'s manager Jerry Heller. It is based on the true story of R&B singer, Michel'le.



Discovered at a young age, the shy, squeaky-voiced Michel'le (Brown) was plucked straight from South Central, Los Angeles and catapulted into the spotlight while riding N.W.A.’s rocket ride of early success. Surrounded by industry visionaries from Eazy-E to Tupac Shakur, Michel’le quickly climbed the charts; but, her musical successes were soon overshadowed by betrayal and corruption. A nearly decade-long romance with the infamous Dr. Dre (Hamilton) pushed her into a life tarnished by alcohol, drugs and violence until her savior came in the unlikely form of Suge Knight (Taylor), co-founder of Death Row Records and Dre’s business partner. Friendship would turn into a courtly romance, but the union Michel’le thought they had did not end happily-ever-after. With children from both men and a career to protect, Michel’le’s voice became silenced by Compton’s biggest power players. Until now.
