I came across this sentence:

>She's just like a straight baller, she's amazing and doesn't take any crap from anybody.

What's the meaning of "straight baller" in this sentence? Is "baller" a solid word in English?


I am pretty sure this comes for basketball talk. A "baller" is someone that plays basketball, and a "straight baller" is a term used to describe people who play basketball very well. Since it is being used in a context outside of basketball, it's meaning is basically that the person in question is very good at what they do.
