The Ballas gang are a Hispanic gang in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that wears purple and resides in Los Santos. They are the mortal enemies of the African-American Grove Street Families and the Aztecas gang, which is comprised mostly of Mexicans. Their leader is unknown and Big Smoke is rumored to be a double agent for them. Male members where purple shirts and pants. Female members where purple sports jerseys. Their domain lies between Grove Street and the Azteca turf to the far east of Los Santos and all the territory to the immediately west of Grove Street. Several of the starting mission involve killing Ballas gang members. The Ballas have grown wealthy off the drug trade and run a crack den near Big Smoke's place. While GSF's influence is declining, the Ballas' influence is increasing.
