The blockbuster film Straight Outta Compton mesmerized music fans last summer 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.

This October, Lifetime will air Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, which 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.

Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le will premiere on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. Watch an exclusive sneak peek above!
