Suffering From Success is a lifelong condition.

And last night DJ Khaled checked into Aventura Hospital because, as the title track off his most recent album explains, "The price of fame, shit real."

Though the actual cause of the big man's visit remains a mystery, his stay might have been related to the perils of being "We the Best!"

But probably it just had to do with high blood pressure.

Almost exactly a year ago, Khaled landed in the hospital because he was exhibiting symptoms of hypertension.

"It wasn't too crazy, but they did all types of tests and they kept me for like two days and it turned into three days, and I'm like, 'Man, this is crazy,'" he told Vibe.

Subsequently, the big man went on medication. He pledged, "Let me change my eating, get in that gym." And he dropped from about 300 pounds to 237.

Still, though, he ended up in the hospital again last night. And in the caption of a now-deleted Instagram selfie, he wrote, "I need a vacation," adding, "Thank you to great people at Aventura hospital for taking care of me ! Bless up!! #GODISTHEGREATEST"

A few hours after posting that photo, the "We the Best" boss was released from care. And just to prove he's recovering, gettin' back "in the gym," and puttin' in work, here's a new Insta vid of Khaled doing nine and a half pushups:
