In his debut album OK, Yedoye Travis solves racism for about an hour through his passion for anime and general incongruity. He walks the audience through life as a young, black man in America, exploring things like famous doppelgangers, conspiracy theories, sexual tourism, and his love for his grandma Cecilia. OK was recorded at Relapse Theatre in Atlanta, GA.
Yedoye Travis is a comedian from Atlanta, currently based in New York.

“I’ve put a lot of work into this album. It’s full of dumb stuff that I love and references that honestly might get me in very minor legal trouble. It’s my debut, so it’s technically the worst album I’ve released, but I’ll still respect you if you like it,” said Yedoye Travis.
