Mr. Mention is the second album by Jamaican dancehall reggae artist Buju Banton, released in 1992 (see 1992 in music). When Banton signed with Mercury Records in 1993, PolyGram purchased the rights to the album and re-released it through Mercury's independently distributed Fader Records imprint with three fewer tracks and an explicit-lyrics sticker affixed to the album cover. The song "Batty Rider" appears in the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game soundtrack, on the fictitious radio station K-Jah West.
