On the show, MCs will compete for the title of hip-hop’s next superstar, with the winner receiving a record deal with SMH Records and $100,000 cash.

(Photos) So You Know It’s TRILL: Omarion & His Girlfriend Get Matching Name Tats

Omarion x Apryl Jones

Omarion and his girlfriend Apryl Jones know it’s “trill” now, as they’ve both tatted each other’s names on their bodies. Taking to their Instagram pages with the hashtag #TattMyNameSoYouKnowItsTRILL, O flaunted his boo’s new neck tat of his nom de plume, while Apryl followed suit showing off her name on her baby daddy’s back. Here’s the thing, though – Apryl writes her name with a Y on everything…and O’s tattoo spells it as April. Uh, was there a horrible mistake there oooor is that how her name is really spelled and she just likes to be ‘different’ on social media?

Either way, it’s never the smartest thing to tat ANYONE’s name but your own blood on you, especially on such a noticeable place like your neck, but that’s none of my business! Pics in the gallery.
