Sean "Diddy" Combs is ready for more people to apply to his charter school.

The entertainment mogul tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that he was now accepting applications to the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School for the 2017-18 school year, which must be turned in by April 1.

Diddy posted a short video about his school with the tweet, which he opens with a line from the famed Notorious B.I.G. song "Juicy": "Attention parents, attention parents: if you don't know, now you know."

The Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School opened in late August of 2016 and enrolled 176 students in sixth and seventh grades out of roughly 1,000 applications.

The school is located at 1 E. 104th St., and its mission is "to provide historically disadvantaged students with the college and career readiness skills needed to become responsible and engaged citizens for social justice."

Parents can apply to have their students go to the school online at www.capitalprepharlem.org.
