Sean Kingston has spoken on the public's perception of Chris Brown, who he has toured with in the past, and stood by the singer's side in light of a publicized dispute with Rihanna.
In addition to sharing his opinion of Brown, Kingston also stressed the importance of the singer's public apology which landed online last month.
"At the end of the day, he's human," the singer said in an interview. "People make mistakes. Let it go...I don't [believe] in somebody beating a woman, but we don't know what happened in that car. All I'm gonna say is let the man be him...He's a great person. He's cool...He sent the apology out. I could tell it came from his heart, so they should give him another chance." (Rap-Up)
Kingston previously hit the road with Brown and Bow Wow on their 2007 Holiday Exclusive tour.
Accompanying the star duo is a line-up of up and coming hip-hop and R&B superstars. Soulja Boy will bring his # 1 single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)," R&B singer Sean Kingston will perform his addictive song "Beautiful Girls," the Shop Boys will bring their hit anthem "Party Like a Rockstar," and rounding out the show is Brooklyn native, Lil Mama, with her summer smash, "Lip Gloss" and current hit "G-Slide."

Ghostface Killah, known for songs which touch upon relationships, recently spoke with SOHH about his reaction to Brown's public apology.
"I guess it's good he said sorry," Ghost explained. "He ain't gettin' no spins. Then I heard Jay-Z was like, 'Yo tell them motherf*ckers don't play that n*gga's sh*t.' N*ggas ain't playing it. He a young dude. It's good that he apologized though. I don't know to what effect that it's going to have on the other people though but he did what he had to do. Now he has to learn from it. I hope that he get back in the game and just do what he do. Just don't do that sh*t no more because now you know." (SOHH)
The singer released his public apology online last month.
"Hi, I'm Chris Brown," he says in the video. "Since February, my attorney has advised me not to speak out even though ever since the incident, I wanted to publicly express my deepest regret and accept full responsibility...I take great pride in being able to exercise self-control and what I did was inexcusable. I'm very sad and very ashamed about what I've done. My mother and my spiritual teachers have taught me way better than that. I have told Rihanna countless times and I'm telling you today that I'm truly truly sorry that I wasn't able to handle the situation better...I've spent a lot time soul searching, and I'm trying to understand what happened and why. No one is more disappointed in me than I am...What I did is unacceptable, 100 percent. I can only ask and pray that you forgive me, please. I hope that others learn from my mistake. I intend to live my life so I am truly worthy of the term role model. Thank you." (Chris Brown TV)
