Did Kendrick Lamar Diss Drake in BET Awards Cypher?

Kendrick deals a subtle slam...
As you may recall, Kendrick Lamar called out a host of rappers including J. Cole, Wale, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean, Meek Mill, Tyler the Creator, Mac Miller, Jay Electronica and Drake on a recent verse for Big Sean's track "Control." Wale among others considered it a compliment, while Drake brushed it off and said "It was real cool for a couple of weeks but like if I asked you for example, 'How does that verse start?'"
Now, Kendrick's taken what some are calling another shot at Drake. During Top Dawg Entertainment's cypher at the 2013 BET Awards, which airs on Tuesday on the network, he delivers a few rhymes that are considered to be aimed at Drake:
"Nothing's been the same since they dropped "Control"
And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes
Ha ha joke's on you, high-five... I'm bulletproof
Your shit never penetrates
Pin the tail on the donkey, boy you been a fake"
Drake's latest album was titled Nothing Was the Same, and the rapper is often considered to be "sensitive" because of the content in his tracks. Check out a clip of the cypher below:
