Yes, it is and was a hustling term started by LA crips back in the 70's. "Rollin" was a term initially used by pimps to describe how they "roll" money, cars, women, jewelery, etc... Rollin 60's crips coined that term first and foremost and then it took off all over LA and SD. In LA, it is now an alliance among "rollin" crip gangs 30, 40, 60, 90 and 100's. Not in SD, though.

I thought i came from the word "ContRollin'". Like 60's controllin' al the sixties streets and 40's all the steets from 40 to 49 etc. I thought I heard it in a documentary or something?
Could that be it?

............not the original lowrider days but when blacks started lowridin..........there was said to be a group in the 1950's or 60's called the roamin 20's......if you think about it the 60's started about the time blacks started lowridin and starting car clubs....so part of the idea might of been around before the rsc's then they put the rollin twist to it....but like i said im just theorizing only the OGs know the real.
