Quotes

Michel'le Toussaint: [Michel'le Toussaint speaking on camera to the audience] Let's do the math here: Dre offered great sex, brilliance, no respect, chaos, violence, hidden baby mamas. Whereas Suge offered kindness, generosity, limited sex, job security, access to power and a chance at a dream i thought was dead. So hate me if you want to, I said yes.

This movie wasn't bad by any means
16 March 2019 | by AB_ExosphereSee all my reviews

I think this movie did a good job of explaining the history of Michel'le and what she had to put up with throughout her days in Compton. Never knew how much she was associated with Dr. Dre and Suge before this movie.
