With less than thirty days to go before the Lifetime premiere of the Michel'le biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge and Michel'le, the network has released the full trailer of what viewers can expect to see from the singer's abusive relationship with Dr. Dre.

Lifetime has shifted promotional gears for the forthcoming biopic of "Nicety" singer Michel'le Toussaint. Initially only a fifteen second teaser was released that left details to the imagination of the viewer.

But now, the network has released a full trailer and it is intense.

The one minute trailer shows a young Touissant, played by actess Rhyon Nicole Brown, during the days where she first became acquainted with original N.W.A. members, Ice CubeEazy-E and Dr. Dre.

The rising star rappers found Toussaint 's young "Mini Mouse" sounding voice to be quite laughable until she reached the studio and sang boldly in front of the men, for the first time and shocked the room.

That recording session ultimately led to a record deal under Eazy-E's label as the first female artist the label ever signed.

This is the story that most fans are familiar with. She was First Lady of Ruthless Records, had hits on the radio and began a romantic relationship with one of the N.W.A. members, Dr. Dre.

But, as the trailer captions pointed out, there's still parts of the story you don't know, that were left out of the Straight Outta Compton film.

On Oct. 15 at 8 p.m., the unspoken "truth' told from the perspective of the "woman behind the men who changed hip-hop," will be aired.

Back then she was silenced to speak up on the day-to-day abuse she endured by Aftermath Records CEO, Dr. Dre but, as of late she's been open and honest, publicly addressing the issue head on.

Both Toussaint and the "Still D.R.E" rapper have spoken their  about their relationship during interviews and Dre has even tried to make amends by apologizing for his actions.

"I apologize to the women I've hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives," he stated in an interview with New York Times.

The story will also reveal details of Toussaint's relationship with Suge Knight.
