breath (noun)

Yesterday’s hip hop workout was so intense that I almost ran out of breath. I couldn’t properly perform the second choreography because we weren’t given the time to catch our breath following the first one.
or — because we weren’t given a chance to catch ...

Breath is a noun, breathe is a verb.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Listen to a hip hop
Listening a hip hop

A: "Listen to a hip hop
Listening a hip hop"
Neither of those sound natural to me unfortunately, "hip hop" is not countable, so you would not use the article "a".

"listening to" is the correct answer.

Other questions about "Hip"

Q: it's more hip that way.
it's hipper that way.

which one is what native speakers would say?
A: People use "hip" ironically now. No one actually says "hip" seriously, lol. But, the most common one would be "it's more hip that way."
Q: nice hip rolling! does this sound natural?
A: Ah okay
In that context, "Nice hip roll!" works best
You could also say "nice hip rolling", but that sounds a little unnatural.

To give some more info on this (though you could stop reading at this point since I go into extra details), the first statement compliments the act itself and how it was performed (the noun). Other examples would be "Nice jump", where you are complimenting that particular jump. The second statement compliments the action/ability of the person to do a hip roll. For example, "Nice jumping", where you are complimenting their series of jumps/their entire actions and their ability to jump overall.
Hope this clears things up!
Q: Why "hips" is generally plural?
A: You can say hip if you're referring to one of them, but hips just refers to both of them at the same time. I'm not sure why it's this way, but "hip" would just be one of the sides (like "my left hip hurts").

"Hips" as a metaphorical concept can start to mean the way the hips move / look on a person externally, but saying "hip" as a body part would always be in the medical/scientific sense of the word.
Q: He always shoots from the hip,so I trust him remarkably.
does this sound natural?
A: He always shoots from the hip, so remarkably I trust him.

this would be better, but "remarkably" seams an odd choice. I'd have expected something like "surprisingly" or "naturally"
Q: what does "be hip to something" mean?
A: @tjstkdn well, it's a little strange to use it that way. "I'm hip with/to my phone" would mean "I know about my phone/I understand how to use my phone"

A- is it okay if I use your phone?
B- sure, I'm cool with that
If you want to use "be cool with" just say it this way :) it's more natural
