Apparently the text on Ello Asty’s helmet is a tribute to the classic Beastie Boys’ record according to our friends at YakFace:

Ello Asty is “Hello Nasty.” Genius!
It is like Admiral Ackbar once said in his youth:
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage.
Jared updates us:
His species is named Abednedo in Moving Target and Aftermath. The Beastie Boys song Shadrach references the Judaeo-Christian parable of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. So, he’s super Beastie.
