"Ah shit, here we go again. Worst place in the world, Rolling Heights Ballas country. I ain't represented Grove Street in 5 years, but the Ballas won't give a shit."
Carl Johnson, right after the cutscene for In the Beginning ends.


Map of Ballas turf, Rollin Heights turf is marked with number 3 2.

The Rollin Heights Ballas are one of the four sets of Ballas in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


The Rollin' Heights Ballas are based in Jefferson, and also control eastern Willowfield and northern East Los Santos. Since the Ballas were probably formed in Glen Park or Jefferson, it is likely they were one of the original sets of Ballas. The RHB is the second-largest Ballas set, behind the Front Yard Ballas.

Events of GTA San Andreas

During the inaugural mission, In the Beginning, Carl Johnson is dropped off in an alleyway in Jefferson, right in the middle of Rollin' Heights country.

In Drive-By, Carl, Sweet Johnson, Big Smoke, and Ryder perform drive-by shootings on Rollin' Heights and Kilo Tray Ballas.

The Rollin' Heights Ballas, along with other Ballas sets, perform a successful attack on the Grove Street Families at the Mulholland Intersection, resulting in the betrayal of Big Smoke and Ryder, incarceration of Sweet, exile of Carl, and downfall of the Grove Street Families. After this, the Rollin' Heights enjoy increased power, with Big Smoke establishing a crack palace on RHB turf.

During End of the Line, the Rollin' Heights Ballas are seen for a last time guarding Smoke's palace, however Big Smoke and the Ballas guards are killed by Carl.

If the player so chooses, he or she can take over all Rollin' Heights turf and place it under Grove Street control.


There are no known members of the Rollin' Heights Ballas, but they can be seen walking and driving around in their turf, indistinguishable from other Ballas sets.
