Cotton's original comedy album recording debut Pitbull Pride was scheduled to take place at The Rozzie Square Theater in front of a live audience on Saturday, March 28th 2020. However, like much of the world, a global pandemic derailed those plans. Since that time, Cotton has amassed thousands of followers on Tik Tok and surpassed one million views across social media. In lieu of touring, Cotton's increasingly popular online presence has opened up new opportunities, such as sponsorships and passive content creator income. Cotton takes pride in using her platform to help raise awareness for social good, the most recent being Black Girls Code & Autism Speaks.
Cotton credits her success to hard work and the unwavering support of family and friends. Cotton gives special thanks to her mentors along the way, especially her mother-in-comedy Comedian Lady Vain.
New date for Cotton's debut comedy album recording to be announced. Comics Rising is scheduled to premiere it's debut comedy festival in 2021.
