Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le
Discovered at a young age, the shy, squeaky-voiced Michel\'le 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 Tupack Skaur, 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 pushed her into a life tarnished by alcohol, drugs and violence until her savior came in the unlikely form of Suge Knight, 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.
