From the ebonic "Baller", derived from the large number of African American RICH sports figures. It has become a term used to describe one as having lots of money. Andy Joo is a racer, he has none of that. He is mearly fronting.

Fronting, as in to put up a front/screen the reality. To pretend.

It's so wonderful how AA lingo always becomes mainstream, we are cool people arent we.

hard: trying to be tough or look or act tough, look mean, etc.

LOL.

Dude!!!

Baller:

Ball sports

bling blinging!


It does not derive from high-baller...that is a gambler.

Hope it helps clear it up for you!
