R&B singer Michel’le is ready to tell her story of loving and surviving in the city of Compton. The “Something In My Heart” songbird has unveiled the teaser for her upcoming Lifetime TV movie, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me.
The film will chronicle her life behind-the-scenes and onstage as she became one of Ruthless Records’ platinum-selling artists. It will also highlight her turbulent relationships with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.
Lincoln Heights star Rhyon Nicole Brown will play the veteran singer in the movie. In addition, up-and-coming actor Curtis Hamilton will play Dre, comedian Jamie Kennedy will portray N.W.A.’s manager Jerry Heller and R. Marcos Taylor is reprising his role as Suge Knight after playing the Death Row Records founder in the 2015 movie, Straight Outta Compton.
In the 15-second promo clip, Michel’le’s mouth is covered with the “Parental Advisory” sticker. Before the singer slowly peels it off her lips, a message reads, “Behind the men who changed hip-hop is the woman who knows the truth.”
There’s no official word on when the movie will premiere on Lifetime TV. But Michel’le’s ex-husband, Suge Knight, has already threatened to sue if the movie makes him look bad.
