Snoop Lion's 4/20 Festival was put out before he even had the chance to light up.

According to TMZ, the rapper held a marijuana party at a Hollywood Hills mansion and it was shut down by police just as he was arriving to it.

The party reportedly started yesterday at 11 a.m., but neighbors in the surrounding area complained to the police about "the noise levels and parking situation." TMZ reports that the party didn't have a permit either.

Cops arrived and shut the party down, but Snoop was reportedly very cooperative during the ordeal -- talking to the police and understanding why it was being shut down. The site says that nobody was cited at the party.

Before the celebration, Snoop seemed ready to party in a tweet he wrote. "Bout to be #Snoop420," he tweeted. "Who's celebratin' wit me. The happy holidays."

Snoop wasn't the only one looking forward to celebrating 4/20 -- Rihanna showed off an impressive marijuana leaf-shaped cake on her Instagram page.
