In a 2016 interview with GlobalGrindTV, Lil Uzi Vert explained the title of Luv Is Rage: "It goes two different ways. It's, like, I usually just say the one way, but it go both ways. Like ‘Luv Is Rage’ is, like, L-U-V: it's Lil Uzi Vert, and, like, I'm a rockstar, I am rage, like everything I do, I'm raging. And, it's more, like, you know rage is, like, it's not that good, like, raging is, like, rebellious, like, and, like, with love, like, you know, love is good. Like, but love is also bad too. It's horrible. And it was, like, a lot of songs are a little darker and stuff and, like, you can hear the stuff that I say–stuff, like, yeah–I don't know, I'm always in a bad space, even if I'm, like–I don't know, I'm crazy"
