Spiritual Minded is rapper KRS-One's fifth official album. It was released in January 2002 on Koch Records. KRS-One's Spiritual lyrical content came as a surprise to fans and critics, as he had previously written songs critical of Christianity and organised religion.[6] The album also makes references to the Temple of Hiphop, founded by KRS-One.
