Stone Gon' is the second studio album by American R&B singer Barry White, released in 1973 on the 20th Century label. The album was arranged by Barry White and Gene Page.


The album topped the R&B albums chart, his second to do so. It also reached #20 on the Billboard 200 and #18 on the UK Albums Chart. The album was a success, yielding two Billboard R&B Top Ten singles, "Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up" and "Honey Please, Can't Ya See". Both were also successful on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #7 and #44 respectively. "Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up" was also a hit on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at #14. The album was digitally remastered and reissued on CD on May 3, 1994 by Island/Mercury Records.

The album cover would be mimicked for Richard Pryor's 1974 album That Nigger's Crazy.
