"Don't fuck with the Ballas, baby!"
―Ballas member

The Ballas are a large African-American street gang featured in Grand Theft Auto V. They mainly operate in the city of Davis.

Overview

They still maintain their traditional rivalry with the Families. They usually do not attack if the player happens to walk through or pass through their territory. However, if taunted enough times, or if one fires a gun in their territory, or just because of walking near and staring the Ballas will become hostile and begin to shoot or punch the player. Their dogs will also occasionally attack the player, especially if the player is Franklin. The Ballas are supporters of the Los Santos Panic Basketball Team and the Boars Baseball Club, with their purple attire matching the teams' colors.

One of the protagonists, Franklin Clinton, is not on friendly terms with the Ballas as he is part of The Families. However, if he speaks to a Ballas member, they will not be aggressive at first, although they become hostile when Franklin insults them (usually the 3rd time you press the talk button).

They can often be seen drinking, driving cars, bikes, and even walking dogs. Most Ballas stand on the sidewalks in groups of 3-5. Their weapons include Pistols, Micro SMGs, and knives. Members are also seen smoking cigarettes, marijuana, and drinking Pißwasser.

Territory

The Ballas control the entire city of Davis. The cul-de-sac of Grove Street is a particular hotspot for activity as well as Davis Avenue, Brouge Avenue and Covenant Avenue in the neighborhood. The Ballas also have a marijuana growing/packing business set up in an abandoned sawmill to the southwest of Paleto Bay.

Sets

  • East Side Ballas (ESB): Set of Ballas in east side of Davis. They saying these sentences  "ESBG Families Killa!" , "East Side Balla Gang, what's the problem?" "East Side, nigga!" and "Fuck you, West Side bitches!" They normally wear jerseys of the Los Santos Panic and Purple plaid shirts.
  • Original Covenant Ballas (OCB): Set of Ballas in Covenant Avenue and Grove Street. They saying these sentences  "OCBG! FK, VK all day!" . Possibly, they are main set of Ballas. Also, Balla OG D from OCB. They normally wear Varsity jackets with the Boar logo in the front or back as well as shirts with "SA" in the front and Boar logo in addition.
  • South Side Ballas (SSB): Set of Ballas in south side of Davis. They have Rancho text on their clothes. Because Rancho was Jefferson in GTA San Andreas. Jefferson was calling "Rollin Heights Ballas Country". But in HD Universe, Rancho is now Vagos Turf.

Trivia

  • In one of the dialogue used by random Ballas members, they mention Big Smoke, the Families member and traitor in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
  • Ballas keep their unique highly modified bright purple and gold coloured gang cars in their cul-de-sac in Grove Street. They can be found parked or driving slowly around the area.
  • In The Underbelly Of Paradise, it is implied that the Ballas have territory in Strawberry, however they are not programmed to spawn there. This may also be true of Rancho, as certain Ballas members wear shirts with "Rancho" on them.
  • The Original Covenant Ballas set is revealed by Adric Howard, a Balla of this set, who posted an update to Feud's Lifeinvader page. "Only bitches wear green. Original Covenant 4 life.". Lamar and Franklin mention the OCB when hanging out.
  • The Ballas are based on the Bloods gang in LA, because they formed after The Families, exactly like the Bloods formed after the Crips (upon which gang The Families are based on). Another fact is proven because they wear hats with P's and B's on them just like the real life Bloods.
    • In contrast, however, the primary color of the Ballas is purple; the same color the Grape Street Crips (a set of the Crips) uses.
  • Coincidently, the Baller SUV is mostly used by Ballas.
  • The Ballas are one of the four gangs from 3D universe to reappear in the HD Universe the other are The Families, The Vagos and The Varrios Los Aztecas
  • If you go to Davis wearing purple clothing in GTA Online, the Ballas will react differently than if you were wearing green (Families) or yellow (Vagos) colored clothes.
  • In GTA Online, defeating the Ballas in five gang attacks in one session will result in a bounty on your head. You will also recieve a threatening text message from an unknown person: "Who the fuck do you think you are? You're dead now."
  • Ballas are mentioned in The Ballad of Gay Tony, in the mission Corner Kids if the player fails the mission and starts again, triggering a different dialogue in the car.
