I can't say YOLO
Because I've been here before, so def that I've been reborn, Soulo
“Def” is used to describe something that is cool. It is also used to here as a pun on “death.” He can’t say YOLO (you only live once) because Ab was already alive in a past life and was reborn, spiritually.
Physically, he had Stevens-Johnson disease as a child. It had an 80% fatality rate, and Ab-Soul lost his hearing, sight, and his skin was covered in boils. However clearly he survived. Soulo!
He could also be talking about the soul the essence of everyone on Earth’s being its made up of pure energy. But energy can never die, it can only transform, so no one actually dies they just go somewhere else.
