Cable channel Lifetime has officially begun airing the trailer for the forthcoming film “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge Knight & Michel’le” and it looks like a must see. The made for television biopic documents Michel’le’s stint as “The First Lady Of Ruthless Records”, including the shady business deals that lead to the downfall of her career and the domestic violence she endured while romantically involved with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight. Actress Rhyon Nicole Brown has been cast as Michel’le. Actor R. Marcos Taylor, who portrayed Suge Knight in the NWA biopic “Straight Outa Compton”, will reprise his role in the film. With the box office success of “Straight Outta Compton”, the Michel’le biopic is sure to do well in the ratings. The film will air on Saturday, October 15 at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime. Ever since the airing of the Lifetime TLC  biopic “Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story”  singer Pebbles has been fighting against what she sees as an inaccurate portrayal of the events that lead to the bankruptcy of the R&B trio and she’s still at it. According to Page Six, last week, a federal judge in Atlanta allowed Peri “Pebbles” Reid’s $40 million defamation lawsuit against Viacom to proceed after Viacom tried to stop it. Both sides have released statements regarding the matter, and only time will tell where things will go from here. It’s hard to believe it’s still going on. The feud between rappers The Game and Meek Mill, which seemingly came from nowhere, has now moved to wax, with each rapper releasing diss racks aimed at one another. It all began on Thursday night when The Game took time out of his set at Miami’s Club Story to call out Meek for snitching, then followed it with the diss track “92 Bars”, which references his forthcoming album “1992.” The back and forth continued as well as intensified when Sean Kingston got involved by supporting Meek as well as fellow Philadelphia native Beanie Sigel  via Instagram. Yesterday, Meek finally responded on a remix with rising New York rapper Young M.A.’s street hit “OOOUUU”, which features Sigel and Meek affiliates Omelly and Takbar. Let’s hope the beef stays on wax. Rapper Snoop Dogg was the recipient of the “I am Hip Hop” award at the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta on Saturday. Kendrick Lamar introduced the Snoop to a packed house at the Cobb Energy Performing Centre. When accepting his award, Snoop stated that he often felt misunderstood during the beginning of his career and made feel good music for listeners. Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar took home  Lyricist of the Year. After accepting his award, Lamar praised Snoop Dogg. He added that music is the best way to bring people together and thanked BET for putting the show together. Fat Joe and Remy Ma won Track of the Year for their single “All The Way Up.” The Hustler of the Year award went to DJ Khaled and Best New Hip Hop Artist went to Chance the Rapper, who wasn’t in attendance. Desiigner closed the show with the single “Timmy Turner.”
