US rapper gets jail time after admitting crime on wax

From HipHopDX

Georgia rapper Rico Todriquez Wright shot a man twice in September 2006. According to the Associated Press, Wright decided to describe the shooting, and called his victim, Chad Blue, out by name.

This new evidence landed Wright in prison for the next 20 years.
Blue, 28, told police he had known Wright before the shooting, but that they weren't on good terms. He testified that Wright's friends egged him on as he chased and shot Blue in the thigh and groin.

Blue later told police that he recognized Wright's voice on a CD, where the rapper said "Chad Blue knows how I shoot."

In addition to a sentence of 20 years for two counts of aggravated assault, Wright will spend another 20 years on probation.
