NEW YORK, Oct 9, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Kevin Liles, a U.S. hip-hop record company executive, has written a book that says even accountants can get jiggy to achieve success.

The multimillionaire writes in "Make It Happen: The Hip-Hop Generation Guide to Success" that would-be tycoons could achieve their wildest ambitions by "embracing the struggle" and following the "hip-hop way," reported the Sunday Telegraph.

"The Donald (Trump) understands the hip-hop way of celebrating his identity," said Liles. "He makes his swagger work for him. Without that, he would just be another real estate developer."

Liles says hip-hop culture involves a work ethic that has the power to make dreams come true. He says his book provides advice not just for young rap music enthusiasts but for bored businessmen as well.
