Do ballas and Grove street exist in real life?

Recommended Posts

GN10Gaming

I was curious to find out if they exist in real life or not, no results about it on Google.

 

All I got was a video called "BALLAS GANG" which looked like ballas in real life singing a song.

Are they real ballas or not?

Hmmm nice bike

No, they're not real gangs, but they are based on real-life gangs in Los Angeles like the Bloods and Crips.

No. Could you imagine what would happen to Rockstar if they used real life gangs? It would be terrible! Dan Houser would be beaten with a shovel by some Crips while a couple of Bloods grab Sam by the legs and spin around and then let go so he flies into a wall.

 

There's also a dozen or so Grove Streets irl but if they have any gangs on them, I don't know.

No they do not - well definitely not the kind imagined by Rockstar.

 

But their creation by Rockstar was directly inspired by, and loosely based on the real life Bloods and Crips. However there are real life, small sub-sets of Bloods and Crips in LA that sport green and purple gang colours - the Lime Street Pirus (Bloods that wear green) and the Grape Street Crips (they wear purple).

im pretty sure youre referring to this video:

 

 

which is basically just a music video filmed by members of the grape street crips (which they namedrop) with the title ballas gang. basically the same with other ones titled similar, its just videos by a real life gang that wears these colours with the gang name as the title. as others in the thread have said the ballas and families are based on the crips and bloods (tho which is which is up to interpretation) tho real bloods and crips sets wear green and purple as war colors respectively - particularly, as OG above me said, the lime street piru and grape street crips

Well.....that's exactly what you get with the Grape Street Crips. Their hood includes the area around Grape Street and they usually wear purple clothing. As fictional as it may seem, it's real.
