A 6-year-old Chicago boy wanted rapper King Von to host his birthday bash. But he's dead, so the boy's mom did the next best thing.

She mounted a life-size picture of the rapper on a cardboard stand up. Then she dressed the birthday boy just like his idol in a white tee and black shorts with a faux diamond pendant.

The boy's birthday cake featured a similar photo of the late rapper wearing a white Furberry t-shirt and black pants.

King Von was gunned down during a fistfight outside an Atlanta lounge last year.

The little boy, named Daundrea, is seen flashing a gang sign in a photo next to Von's cardboard standup -- just like his idol.

The Internet comments were brutal.

One Reddit.com user wrote: "Rest In Peace Von but damn hope that kid don't go towards that life."

Another user wrote: "this is honestly some of the dumbest sh-t I've seen in a long time he shouldn't even know who von is."

And a third wrote, "This is lack of having a dad."

Question: Would you let your 6-year-old listen to drill/trap music?
