In 2005, his band Fall Out Boy made it big when their sophomore album Under the Cork Tree debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s albums chart. Five years later, Wentz started a new musical project, Black Cards.
In addition to his musical talents, Wentz also has a clothing line called Clandestine Industries.
