Career[edit] Michel'le in 1990 Michel'le was originally a featured female vocalist on World Class Wreckin' Cru's 1987 single "Turn Off the Lights". The singer was called at the last minute to record vocals originally for Mona Lisa who could not make it to the studio. Michel'le was signed to Eazy-E's Ruthless Records. In 1989, she released her self-titled debut album, produced entirely by then-boyfriend Dr. Dre. The album contained "No More Lies" and the hit singles "Nicety" and "Something in My Heart." Michel'le was certified Gold on April 25, 1990 with 1.3 million copies sold overall to date.[1] During the Suge Knight shakedown incident, Eazy was forced to sign over Dr. Dre, The D.O.C. and Michel'le. She garnered a nomination for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group at the 33rd Grammy Awards for her part in the single cut "We're All in the Same Gang" (as the West Coast All-Stars) which also included Ice T, Eazy E, Dr. Dre, MC Ren, MC Hammer, Young MC and JJ Fad. In 1998, she released her second album Hung Jury on Death Row Records but it garnered little attention and no hit singles. As of 2013 worldwide sales for the album stood at 171,000 copies sold. She also provided vocals on 2Pac's song "Run Tha Streets" on his album, All Eyez On Me and Tha Dogg Pound's song "Let's Play House" on their debut Dogg Food. Following Dr. Dre's departure from Death Row Records, Michel'le and Dr. Dre parted ways Her most recent music was a contribution to the soundtrack Dysfunktional in 2003. She has since confirmed through several media outlets that she's been working on new material and looking for a label for her third album. A trailer video for Michel'le's single "Freedom To Love" can be seen on YouTube [2] and also has a brand new single titled "It Still Hurts" and "Nothing". In 2013, Michel'le was part of the cast of TV One's R&B Divas LA.[3] On October 15, 2016, Lifetime aired a Biopic about Michel'le's life called Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le.[4] Michel'le was portrayed by Rhyon Nicole Brown.[5] It's the untold story about her abusive relationship with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, her experiences with Ruthless Records, and the journey she went through to find herself. Her character was left out of the 2015 film, Straight Outta Compton,[6] even though she played a huge role in N.W.A. Indeed, she was dissed in a notorious NWA diss track on Ice Cube's 1991 double platinum effort, Death Certificate, during a reference to a video the group made with the female singer. Michel'le is cast as herself in the stage play Love Jones the Musical.[7][8]


Personal life[edit] Michel'le and ex-fiancé Dr. Dre have a son named Marcel (born 1991).[9] She has gone on record stating that Dr. Dre used to physically abuse her, including breaking her nose (which she had to have surgically corrected) and ribs.[10][11] She married Death Row Records CEO/Co-founder Suge Knight in 1999. The two allegedly divorced 6 years later and according to Michel'le she found her marriage to Suge was fake through the divorce process because he was still married to his ex-wife Sharitha. She has gone on record to say he also physically abused her.[12] They have a daughter Bailei, who was born in 2002.[13]
