What does Ballin mean?

‘Ballin’ means ‘Doing well’

When you hear someone say ‘Ballin’, they’re usually talking about a person who’s doing really well, especially in terms of money. It’s a pretty cool way to say someone’s rolling in dough and has a high social standing because of it.

‘Ballin’ has its roots in the 1990s, when the worlds of hip hop culture and sports like basketball and football overlapped. The term ‘Ballers’ was used to describe people who were so good at these sports that they could play professionally, and, of course, earn big bucks too.

So, while the term was super popular in the mid-2000s, you might not hear it as much now. That’s just because slang words come and go. But don’t be surprised if you do hear it, especially in the Black community, when people are talking about someone who’s made it big and has all the flashy stuff to show for it, like fancy jewelry, expensive cars, and big houses.
