Phrase of the day: Ballaholic
1. Term: Description of an individual or group of individuals (orig: of African American descent but not restricted to) addiction to a hedonistic lifestyle consistent and associated with ballaholic tendancies. ‘High rolling’, ‘Living like a pimp‘ ‘Doin’ it big‘ or ‘Flossing hard‘ all describe the main activiyies of an authentic Ballaholic persona.

3..a. Two or more practices (see 4.below) stemming from funds accumulated from the sale of narcotics that qualify an individual or group of individuals to be known as Ballaholic.
b. A ‘rap nigga’s (rapper) lyrical suggestion that he/she and his/her crew live a lifestyle not usually associated with the so called ‘hood rat’. The Ballaholic life style is said to derive from monies generated from shifting Ki’s (kilos) of cocaine or crack cocaine in ‘Da hood’ (the neighbourhood), another practice know as ‘da grind‘ (selling illegal drugs).
It is said that the illegal practice of selling narcotics coupled with “being on the grind in da hood 24/7” will place this particular rap individual in a comfortable and perpetual state of ‘balling hard’, thus resulting in the desired Ballaholic status. (usually,the negative aspects of becoming widely known as a ballaholic often leads to playa hating, snitching, incarceration, and gang related deaths)
