R&B singer Michel’le has a story to tell in the forthcoming Lifetime biopic Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me.

Surviving Compton will tackle the Los Angeles native’s journey through the turbulent days of N.W.A‘s stardom after being signed to Eazy E’s Ruthless Records, becoming Dr. Dre‘s girlfriend and forming romantic ties to Suge Knight. Michel’le, best known for her 1990 hit single “No More Lies,” will be played by Lincoln Heights star Rhyon Nicole Brown.

The promo clip finds Michel’le ripping the cautionary “Parental Advisory” sign off her lips with a message that reads, “Behind the men who changed hip-hop is the woman who knows the truth.”

The film, made in partnership with Sony Pictures Television and Thinkfactory Media, will also feature rising actor Curtis Hamilton as Dre, Scream actor Jamie Kennedy as music manager Jerry Heller, and R. Marcos Taylor reprising his role as Suge Knight after playing the hip-hop mogul in the 2015 blockbuster hit Straight Outta Compton.
