A man was shot and wounded after a hip-hop show in Hollywood early Monday.

The man was leaving the Wonderland Club, where Compton rapper Problem and the Inglewood hip-hop group Cali Swag District performed, when the shooting took place.

Officer Gregory Baek of the Los Angeles Police Department said the victim, a 25-year-old man, had gotten in an altercation with someone at the club.

The man left the club and was walking near Yucca Street and Cahuenga Boulevard about 1:18 a.m. when a vehicle approached him from behind and someone shot him in the back.

The victim was transported to a local hospital and was in stable condition.

[Updated at 9:14 a.m.: Rapper M-Bone, a member of the Cali Swag District, was killed in May in a drive-by shooting in Inglewood. M-Bone, whose real name is Montae Talbert, was shot twice in the head while sitting in a car.]
