Carson Avenue Ballas ( AKA Front Yard Ballas) History: The Ballas are an African-American street gang based in Los Santos. Most of their territory can be found in the poorer/run-down neighborhoods to the far east of the city. They are involved in gangbanging, gang warfare, street violence, prostitution, gang-related homicide, murder, drug trafficking/manufacturing (especially the crack cocaine trade), gun-running/arms trafficking, vandalism, and degeneracy. They are easily identifiable by wearing purple clothing as their gang color. The Ballas have been around since the 1970s Specific information regarding where or how they formed is unknown. However, it is likely that the Ballas evolved either from Glen Park or Jefferson since Idlewood and possibly Willowfield were controlled by the Grove Street Families prior to 1987 and since East Los Santos was split between the Grove Street Families and the Vagos prior to 1992. The Ballas have a history of a traditional, intense, and bloody rivalry with the Grove Street Families. Specifically when the gang war started is unknown, but the rivalry between the two gangs was in full swing as early as 1987. Prior to 1992, the Ballas used to control the area of Temple - which is under control of the Temple Drive Families in 1992. The Ballas became major influential players in the crack-cocaine using the tactic of selling drugs in the enemies turf to weaken the gang and then take over. Remained dominant until the late 1990’s until the police wiped out Front yard Ballas in a huge gang sting. Joey being kicked out of Vagos and co operating with the Ballas on grove street. They decided to let him run his own set. He named this gang Carson Avenue Ballas AKA Front yard ballas. Despite their rivalry with the Los Santos Vagos on the streets, influential members from the Ballas and the Vagos maintain a business partnership for the interest of money and drugs And protection of turf. (Ballas graffiti in chamberlain hills) News and Media: On January 31, 1992, Thomas murdered a man called Carlos Adkins in an apartment in Idlewood by shooting him repeatedly to death. Over a year later on the night of February 22, 1993, about 11 p.m., Los santos Police Officer Kevin Michael Burrell, 29 and Reserve Officer James Wayne MacDonald, 24 made a routine traffic stop in Idlewood at the Pizza stack, on a red 1992 Chevrolet 454 pickup truck being driven by Thomas. As the officers exited their patrol car and approached the pickup truck, Thomas exited his vehicle and opened fire on both officers. Both officers were knocked down to the ground by bullet wounds to their limbs. According to trial testimony, Thomas shot at their heads execution-style. Both officers were wearing bulletproof vests and were found lying face down near their patrol car with their guns holstered. There were nine spent nine-millimeter shell casings in front of the patrol car. Burrell died of multiple gunshot wounds to the arm, face, left foot, and head. MacDonald was also shot four times, in his left armpit, middle back, upper back, and behind the right ear, and died of a gunshot wound to the chest. After the shootings Thomas returned to his truck and drove away. Ballas are always depicted as very violent through the media known for their crimes like extortion, Arms smuggling and Crack cocaine distributing. Car wash: The car wash is used by the Ballas as a hangout spot and where they spend a lot of free time and a main hub for drug trafficking, The gang members realized it would appear less suspicious standing around at a car wash selling drugs then standing on the corner. They also chose this spot because of the view it gives over the train tracks allowing them to see what is happening on the other side of the train tracks. This is conveniently located so that Ballas members can run from police on foot or enemies in case of ambush. Ballin’ Herr Kutz Barber shop: Owned by the Ballas since the late 1980s, This is the location where all of the illegal money that gets laundered goes through.

Rumors are they also sell guns and crack cocaine in the hours that the barber shop is closed. This is another location they may be spotted hanging out.

For best reading experience it is recommended to play the following song while viewing the Ballas faction thread: It is believed that the Ballas gang formed at some point in the early 1960's in Los Santos in an era where gang activity and crime were rampant in the inner city community. Originally the group was formed in a joint effort to combat what the local African American population felt was an overbearing, racist, and corrupt Los Santos Police Department, after decades of government mandated reform the Ballas are now known for their more recent bloody and violent opposition to another local gang known as Grove Street Families. Although the reason for the war between the two gangs is widely unknown, the two gangs struggled over turfs from the early 1980's to the early 2000's however the train tracks now serve as a clear divide between Grove Street and Jamestown Street and the gang on gang violence has been dormant in the wake of movements such as Black Lives Matter. The Ballas are known in the street as being responsible for the death of Beverly Johnson mother of notorious Grove Street leaders Sweet and CJ in 1992 sparking an increase in gang on gang violence in the area. The Ballas have moved around throughout various areas of Los Santos in various groups known as sets. Some notoriously violent groups such as Rollin Heights Ballas, Temple Drive Ballas, Jefferson Ave Ballas, Front Yard Ballas, and others have made a name for themselves but have been eradicated by either gang war or incarceration. Presently there is only one active set of Ballas within Los Santos known as the Jamestown Hood Ballas. Around Jamestown gang life is not easy but it does come with its perks. Growing up in poverty in the Jamestown Community Projects offers low-income home for many of Los Santos poorest residents. Children and young teens are often exploited and used for criminal activity at a young age due to lenient sentencing for minors. The Ballas are known to exploit its younger members having members work the corners selling drugs, participate in robberies and theft, and being scapegoats or distractions in binds with police. Gang members participate in several activities such as playing dice in the alley ways behind Jamestown Street, involving themselves in the Hip-Hop and EDM scenes through music from artists such as Youn$ Dro, and showing off their low-rider vehicles and other cars accented with Ballas Purple. Members often conduct front jobs such as delivering for the postal service or simply live on welfare. If they represent the hood well, they may be put on payroll by the local gang leaders or be cut in on the more profitable illegal activities. Members of the Ballas have been known to have deep roots in the drug trade as well as arms trade, however they are known to be focused on profitability rather than bloodshed. Interaction between the Ballas and the local Los Santos Police Department have died down recently as gang violence also has plummeted in the area. Many believe this is due to modern day Los Santos street gangs focusing more on black community activism, anti government movements, and police brutality. The Ballas are known for their fanatic love for the color Purple, also referred to in slang as Burple short for Ballas Purple. Although purple is their color of choice, it cannot be used to accurately identify members of the gang due to the fact that local thugs will enforce the purple dress code within the community regardless of if they represent the Ballas gang. If local residents of the community are found without some sort of purple attire they are likely to be harassed, jumped, or robbed by the local thugs. Likewise, visitors of the area are also at risk if they enter parts of the city claimed by the Ballas gang. Ballas commonly refer to ones purple clothing or accessories as their grapes. Gang members are often under the influence of a grape drink known as syrup or lean which they sip out of styrofoam cups which is typically a concoction of prescription grade promethazine, grape juice, and sprite. Full fledged members of the Ballas gang will receive a purple bandana also known as a rag which they're required to keep with them to demonstrate their affiliation. Ballas members can be spotted rocking the Los Santos "B" baseball team logo hats and tattoos as well as tattoos sporting their sacred Mother Mary whom is at the center of Ballas cult like religious beliefs. Jamestown Community Projects are a set of low-income housing projects in the lower south side of Los Santos. These project buildings leave a lot to be desired in terms of living conditions but provide extremely cheap means of housing for new city residents which the gang uses to its advantage often forcing low-income residents to pay illegal taxes for owning property within the gangs turf areas as well as recruiting low-income members whom are often easy to exploit with the profitability of illegal activity in Los Santos. As mentioned, Ballas will enforce all community members to fly the purple gang colors even if they are not affiliated with the gang. Jamestown Street's 504 and 514 blocks are notorious for illegal gang activity. The project housing located on the 504 block provides cheap housing for illegal activities such as trap houses, whore houses, and drug manufacturing which is difficult for police to keep track of and monitor. All in all, the Jamestown Hood Ballas are spread along the lower south east side of Los Santos and are known for their fluid living situations, often having large trap house group homes as well as several stash locations. Members often switch housing with other members or family members on purpose to throw off Police task forces.

Who are The Rollin' Heights Ballas? The Ballas are an African-American street gang based in Los Santos. Most of their territory can be found in the poorer/run-down neighbourhoods to the far east of the city. They are involved in gang banging, gang warfare, street violence, prostitution, gang-related homicide, murder, drug trafficking/manufacturing (especially the crack cocaine trade), gun-running/arms trafficking, vandalism, and degeneracy. They are easily identifiable by wearing purple clothing as their gang colour. The Story behind the Ballas The Rollin' Heights Ballas date back to the 1970's, being heavily influenced in drug and weapon trade in Los Santos, there activity's and rivalries have caused a lot of controversy over the 40 years that they have been active and often fought bloody battles against rival gangs such as GSF and the Vatos. They have maintained a traditional, intense and bloody rival with the Grove Street Families. The reason the gang war started is unknown, but the rivalry between the two gangs was in full swing as early as 1987. However the reason for the war is likely due to territorial reasons due to the close proximity of territories. The fight for turf in Los Santos grew as the drug trade became much more profitable and with this the gang grew and expanded in all forms of criminal activities which helped them become the gang they are today. By 1992, the Ballas where the largest and most powerful street gang in Los Santos, and control most of the streets of Los Santos with the Grove Street Families being driven back to Grove Street itself and a few surrounding neighbourhoods. The Ballas become major influential players in the crack-cocaine business in Los Santos and establish ties with the Loco Syndicate, the Vagos, and the San Fierro Rifa for narcotics (especially cocaine). The Ballas also establish ties with the Russian Mafia for weapons. Despite their business relationship with the Vagos, they still reacted with hostilities on the streets. It was possibly only the higher-ranking OG's of the Vagos and the Ballas that where involved in the business relationship. Drug Trade The Ballas are some of Los Santos' most notorious and successful drug dealers and suppliers (especially the crack cocaine trade). Unlike the Grove Street Families, the Ballas have no reservations about making money by selling drugs; the spread of crack cocaine into the Grove Street community is part of their strategy to wipe the GSF out. They are described by the Los Santos Police Department as being "lawless", "mindless", and thought to be uncontrollable and that attempts to infiltrate have mainly failed. Gang Vehicles The Rollin' Height Ballas keep true to their styles from the 80's and 90's rolling in some of the most classic and reliable vehicles from the era, the cars are usually heavily modified to perform better and given customisation which draw respect from others on the street. Vehicles that are often used by Balla's are the Buccaneer, Tornado, Peyote and Mananas but is not limited to this.
