Todd Howard, better known by his stage name Toddy Tee, is an American rapper from Los Angeles, California. He is an important pioneer of the West Coast hip hop scene. His most notable song is "Batterram", which was about the armoured cars that were driven into suspected crack houses by the Los Angeles Police Department. The song, along with "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five from New York, would introduce street and drug chronicles to hip hop music. "Batterram" helped to make Toddy Tee one of Los Angeles' first big hip hop stars. Toddy Tee was an influence on fellow Los Angeles-based artists such as Ice-T and King Tee, who developed similar styles.
