Additional Information: 

“I dig you the most” means to like, approve, or have a crush on someone. It translates to “I like you”. Another definition is to understand someone. If I dig something, that means to appreciate, favor, or be interested in a thing. These definitions come from African American Vernacular English. Possible etymological origins include Wolof, a Niger-Congo language from Senegal, Gambia, and Mauritania, words: dëgg or dëgga, and the Irish word: tuig, both meaning “to understand, to appreciate” (WordSense, n.d., “Origin & history II”).
