How to use "Off the hip" in context?

When someone refers to something as "off the hip," they mean that it is not something that is typically talked about or thought about. This usually means that the information is not something that someone is sharing for the purpose of obtaining approval or appreciation, but is instead something that they are just sharing because it is something that they feel is important. When someone speaks off the hip, they are not thinking about the consequences of what they are saying, and there is a chance that what they say could be misinterpreted. This type of communication is not always comfortable or spontaneous, but it can be a very effective way of transmitting information.
