Sean 'Diddy' Combs looks on during warm-ups prior to Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles at U.S. Bank Stadium on Feb. 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minn.

Some people celebrate their birthday with a nice dinner and a couple of friends. But Diddy would rather jump out of a plane and land on the Playboy mansion grounds to mark his latest trip around the sun. Celebrating his 49th in style, the Bad Boy mogul channeled his inner Will Smith on Sunday (Nov. 4) and jumped out of a plane to commemorate his b-day. 

"I'm about to jump out a plane. I always wanted to do it," he shared in a series of videos chronicling the stunt. "No, I didn't really always want to do it. I started thinking about it this year. I wanted to do it in Dubai. It didn't happen, and then I said I would do it for my birthday." 

Wearing a custom-made NASA space suit -- Combs explained the plan after reminding his followers to vote for midterm elections on Tuesday (Nov. 6), "I'm gonna jump out a plane and attempt to land two houses down in the backyard of the Playboy mansion. I'm living my best life!"

Aware of the similarities to Smith's big 50th birthday stunt, the rapper clarified that he wanted to skydive before the actor bungee-jumped over the Grand Canyon. "He definitely gave me some inspiration after seeing him jump out, so Will, I don't want you to think I'm biting."

Successfully landing on the Playboy mansion's grounds, Diddy was greeted by family and friends who cheered as he completed the birthday jump. Other close friends like Fergie, took to Twitter to wish the entrepreneur a happy birthday.    

"I DID IT!!!" he captioned the video of him coming to a stop on the Mansion's grounds. "Thank you to my neighbors at the Playboy Mansion for letting me use their house to land. NO FEAR!!!!"
