our mission

encouraging and nourishing a more unified hip-hop culture while maintaining creative safe environments 

our founders

Nuke and Fos met during a recording session at fos' home studio in 2020. Over a few sessions time they realized they shared many of the same common values and had similar "not-so-smooth" backgrounds. Though both are too familiar with adversity and troubling circumstance they are two of the most optimistic and helpful people in the 518. 

itsRecords518 was created when they realized their intentions both match so perfectly. "its" is the gateway or vehicle by which they take control of their positioning and create a better future for themselves, their children and their community. Spreading positivity is one of their core values. Fos may make some songs with ignorant lyrics about drugs or violence on occasion but neither of them partake in any of those behaviors they remain careful to make sure overall they are helping more than they are damaging or taking in all aspects of life.

"its "aims to set a good example and hopefully build something that helps or inspires many.. especially our children and community

we are always looking to involve others who share our values in our journey.
