surviving-compton-stillStory:  The blockbuster film Straight Outta Compton mesmerized music fans with its vivid look behind the scenes of the pioneering hip hop collective N.W.A.  Now get ready to hear a shocking new side of their story.  Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, tells the tale of Michel’le Toussaint, who rose to fame in the early days of rap as the so-called “First Lady of Ruthless Records.”  Surrounded by industry titans like Eazy-Z, Tupac Shakur, and obviously Suge Knight and Dr. Dre, she achieved major chart success – only to have it tarnished by betrayal and corrupt business dealings.  Her romantic relationship with Dre lasted for nearly a decade, during which time she veered further into a world ruled by substance abuse and crime. A blossoming affair with Knight, Dre’s friend and business partner, would offer temporary salvation, but ultimately complicate all of their lives.  Source(s):  People; Billboard.
