After endorsing Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, Sean "Diddy" Combs decided to take his enthusiasm for encouraging other people to vote to a higher level -- literally. In celebration of his birthday, Sunday Nov. 4, the music mogul decided to jump out of a plane, both to fulfill his own personal goal and to inspire others to take action.

As captured on Instagram, the REVOLT TV chairman and entertainer detailed his plans and documented the feat in a series of posts by explaining how this moment came to be.

"I've always wanted to do it," Mr. Combs says in one of the video clips. "No, I really didn't always want to do it. But, I started thinking about it this year. I wanted to do it in Dubai. It didn't happen. I said that I would do it for my birthday."

After explaining his plan to land in the backyard of the Playboy Mansion, it was soon go time. The legendary businessman and artist also donned a custom NASA uniform for the special occasion that featured a custom "LOVE" patch.

"I'm living my best life," the fearless leader continued. "I'm going to tell y'all to go out and vote. Say a little prayer for me now. I'm about to go up in the air."

Another clip -- which was soundtracked by his friends and family members cheering him on -- was also shared and it revealed footage of the massive leap and successful landing.

Prior to jumping out of the plane to celebrate his birthday, Mr. Combs shouted out Will Smith as added inspiration. Mr. Combs also clarified that he had been planning to do this for quite some time now and wasn't "biting" his friend's birthday moves. As fans can recall, Smith bungee jumped out of a helicopter for his 50th birthday back in September.
