I would share the definition of ballin’
With you white folks, but no
The game is to be sold not told, so fuck you

from 2Pac – Str8 Ballin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

If you look up ‘balling’ on urbandictionary, you’ll see a biased opinion of the definition from the perspective of “white folk”. They pretty much define it just as being rich and blowing money on expensive things like gold chains instead of buying essential things you need to survive. But even though Pac understood that it was a great feeling to be able to flash your chain in the ghetto you grew up in as a sign of hope, he also knew that “balling” means a lot more than just showing off nice things. “Balling” encompasses a lot more than being rich, so Pac gives out a “fuck you” to those that try to define it without really experiencing it.
