Last summer, on what was a fine and breezy day, Winnie The Pooh suffered a nasty honey overdose. After a swift recovery and cherishing a second chance at life, Pooh wrote a song, reflecting on some of the hallucinations he experienced. A demo was sent out to producers all over the Hundred Acre Wood, but no one was willing to pick up the track. Fortunately for Pooh, Will.i.am snapped up the opportunity and spent many blustery days tucked away in the studio, making final tweaks to perfect 'Imma Be'. With Christopher Robin pulling out at the last minute, reliable friends BEP stepped in to provide vocals and finish what Pooh had started many months before.
Wolfgang Gartner layered in a few bleeps and a touch of miami bass to add to the EP; accompanied by a mystical rendition from Danger, who was inspired by a personal visit to Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood (which he latterly described as "shit scary", stating he saw "some rather fucked up shit in there!"). Sadly, Piglet and Eeyore's remix didn't cut the mustard and was rejected by Interscope.
