The Savage Warlords are one of the street gangs in The Get Down.
The menacing street gang are seen in many episodes causing havoc. They have been seen burning down buildings, shooting up clubs, ransacking businesses, selling drugs, and murdering.
They are referred to as 'warlords' because of the war that goes on between the different gangs residing in the Bronx. The group is based off real life gangs that ruled the Bronx in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Gangs would often wear insignias (ie. jackets, scarfs, tattoos) to represent which area they belonged to.
