DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) -- He shot a man twice and felt so good about it, police say a Dublin rapper wrote a song describing the incident and calling out the victim by name.

A judge Monday sentenced 25-year-old Rico Todriquez Wright to spend the next 20 years in prison after his victim mentioned the hip hop confession to police.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chad Blue told police he had known Wright before the September 2006 shooting, but that the men weren't friendly.

He testified companions egged Wright on as he chased and shot his victim in the thigh and groin.

Later, Blue told police he recognized Wright's voice on a CD, rapping "Chad Blue knows how I shoot."

Wright was sentenced to 20 years for two counts of aggravated assault.

He will spend another 20 years on probation.
