Ballin, is slang for either selling large quantities of drugs, turning a profit off of any activity where something is sold, being well off financially, or playing basketball well. Someone who is ballin is known as a baller.

The term ballin (technically ballin' abbreviation of the word balling) draws its origins from the illegal cocaine trade. On the upper rungs of the drug trade, dealers buy cocaine by the kilogram (kilo or key), and distribute to lower dealers in portions of an 1/8 ounce (known as an eightball, or ball). Therefore, a drug dealer who is ballin' is buying kilo's of cocaine at a bulk price, and selling eighth's of an ounce to lesser dealers at an inflated price.

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...

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


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