An astonishing elision of the phrase "I am going to," making it the first and only 'triple elision' in the entire English language.

Notice the use of three distinct elisions to turn a four word phrase into a three letter word: "I am going to" > "I'm going to" > "I'm gonna" > "ima."

Awesome.
"Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and ima let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!"

A shortened version of 'i am going to/I am a.' It exists for two reasons and two reasons only....

1. Americans are too damn lazy to say a couple frickin words so they say 'ima' intead of 'i am going to/I am a' because it's only one word, as aposed to 3 or 4 words.

2. 'Ima' is a reallyyy fun word to say!!! Soooo much more fun to say than 'I am going to/I am a'!!!!!
1. Lazy American: I am too lazy to get up and get another chocolate bar so ima need your help, because ima lazy American.
Asian Guy: I am moving back to China.

2. Random Person: Yo, i'm gonna go hit up the movies. Who's comin'?
Bored Person: I am going to come.
Happy and Fun Person: Ima come!
