Up-and-coming rapper Rico Todriquez Wright took "keeping it real" too far when he boasted about shooting Chad Blue on a song that has now landed him in jail.

According to the Associated Press, Wright wrote and released a song in which he admitted to shooting Blue in 2006.

The 28-year-old victim helped the police put the aspiring rapper behind bars when he 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.
