look up any word, like smh:
 
21.
Coming from a song "We Fly High" and in the background they say "ballin" Now whenever someone or somebody does something good, they now say "BALLIN" putting their hand up in the air like they are shooting a basketball. Now this word doesnt have to just be said after something good is done, I have heard people just say ballin because they like to piss people off or they just like saying it. Now, I am totally fine with people saying it, but I feel like I want to rip their faces off when they keep saying it because it "sounds cool". So please, keep the term "ballin" said under very appropriate conditions.
A kid runs down and hits a buzzer shot at the end of the half.

Kid 1: Ballin...

WRONG USE OF "BALLIN"
A person gets out of their car and starts walking into a store and for some reason starts saying "ballin"

Person: BALLIN BALLIN BALLIN
Person: BALLIN BALLIN BALLIN

Two minutes later that man had his face ripped off by the author of this story.

Living a life of extreme wealth and flaunting it. Sadly enough, young people from not so wealthy families think its cool to blow off thousands of dollars on jewlry and clothes instead of trying to move out of the ghetto and finding a better way of life.
