Diddy is in the hospital. The 50-year-old rapper and business mogul updated his Instagram from a pre-surgery bed on Friday, with fans seeing the "I'll Be Missing You" rapper himself telling fans that he's missing them.

As People reports, Diddy was set to undergo his fourth surgery in the space of two years for a quadricep repair. Diddy took to his Instagram while lying in a hospital bed and wearing a plastic blue surgery hat – nothing seemed able to get in the way of the rapper and producer's quest to find new talent, though.

The Grammy winner spoke both from his stories and via a permanent post – while the latter saw him address fans regarding his 2000-2009 "Making the Band" reality show having a reboot, the stories focused on what the rapper himself is currently facing.

“I just found out yesterday, they squeezed me in for today,” he said, adding:

“Pray for ya boy, I’m gonna see you all next time and make it up y’all.”

“I’m clumsy. I trip. I fall. I fall in holes. It’s always been like that,” he stated. “This is my fourth surgery in two years. I’ve had two rotator cuffs, a knee replacement, and now it’s on quad," Diddy continued.

Diddy also suggested that the powers up above had something to do with it.

“At the end of the day, this is God’s work to slow me down, take better care of body and eat right — and just stop treating my body like a machine," he said.

Fans also learned that Diddy has undergone approximately ten medical procedures in his life, from the four rotato cuff surgeries and partial knee replacement, to his toe, wrist, and bicep operations. Diddy also apologized for having to cancel a San Francisco appearance. He also stressed seeking real talent for the return of his show.

The video currently sits at over 1.4 million views.
