 Post Malone is on the mend after bruising his ribs in a nasty fall during a concert.

On Sept. 17, the 27-year-old was performing at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis when he fell against a hole on stage, hitting his chest. Following the accident, the show was paused for several minutes while medics examined him. He then returned, grimacing and holding his side, and apologized to the audience, publications reported. The rapper then went on to perform five more songs.

On Sept. 18, Post spoke about the incident in a selfie video on Twitter. "Whenever we do the acoustic part of the show, the guitars on the guitar stand...it goes down, and there's this big-a-- hole, so I go around there and I turn the corner and bust my a--," the hip-hop star said.

"Winded me pretty good. Got me pretty good. We just got back from the hospital and everything's good. Everything's good. They gave me some pain meds and everything and we can keep kicking a-- on the tour."
