Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge, & Michel’le – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
With a contrasting speaking and singing voice, Michel’le rose to fame alongside N.W.A. Discovered by Lonzo while working, she was courted by Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, but chose Dre and recorded her gold album. The more famous she got, the more abusive he became. Both drank and did drugs to cope, but Michel’le stopped when she got surprising news while on M.C. Hammer’s tour. She was pregnant with Dr. Dre’s 6th child. Through all the women, abuse, and drugs she stayed, but her knight and shinning armor will come in red, will lots of rules, and big fist. Can Michel’le survive Compton?
This is a tough movie to watch for fans of N.W.A and Dr. Dre, but this is Michel’le’s story. With a nostalgic musical composition and bad (albeit accurate) 90s fashion, the bad decisions and triumph of Michel’le ring through and true. It’s hard not to get chocked up when she cries or is beaten, but it needs to be seen. You will see a woman go from one form of abuse to another. Although casting actors to play well known celebrities is not Lifetime’s forte, they are still amazing actors who carry a compelling story. Watch and talk, NOW!!!
