The story is about Michel’le Toussant and her abusive relationships with both Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.
The one-time R&B star (1989?s ?No More Lies?) dated Dr. Dre in the early 1990s, when he and N.W.A. were on the road to stardom. ?The couple lived together and?had a son in 1991. ?Oddly enough, Michel’le later married Dre’s Death Row Records counterpart, Suge Knight, with whom she had a daughter in 2002 (they divorced in 2005).

In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
