    In normal, everyday English this is rubbish. If it is in a rap song or in a gangster movie, it may mean something, but without more information it is as I said, rubbish.

    I think we need to know more.

    A fade-away shot might be some kind of photograph.

    The main slang meaning of balling is having sex, but it has less common meanings, too, including moving fast (high-balling down the highway), breaking pavement with a jack-hammer (balling the jack), and I don't know what else.

    So give us more of the text, and tell us where you found it. Then maybe we can figure it out.
